United States District Court, D. Nevada

MELVIN C. GRAY, Plaintiff,
SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION, Defendant
Melvin C. Gray, Plaintiff, Pro se, Las Vegas, NV.
For Social Security Administration, Defendant: Blaine T Welsh, U.S. Attorney's Office, Las Vegas, NV; Timothy R. Bolin, SSA, Office of the General Counsel, San Francisco, CA.
Gloria M. Navarro, Chief United States District Judge.
Pending before the Court is the Report and Recommendation of United States Magistrate Judge Cam Ferenbach, (ECF No. 31), which states that Plaintiff Melvin C. Gray's Motion for Reversal, (ECF No. 26), should be denied and Defendant's Motion to Affirm, (ECF No. 27), should be granted.
A party may file specific written objections to the findings and recommendations of a United States Magistrate Judge made pursuant to Local Rule IB 1-4. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B); D. Nev. R. IB 3-2. Upon the filing of such objections, the Court must make a de novo determination of those portions to which objections are made. Id. The Court may accept, reject, or modify, in whole or in part, the findings or recommendations made by the Magistrate Judge. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); D. Nev. IB 3-2(b). Where a party fails to object, however, the Court is not required to conduct " any review at all . . . of any issue that is not the subject of an objection." Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149, 106 S.Ct. 466, 88 L.Ed.2d 435 (1985). Indeed, the Ninth Circuit has recognized that a district court is not required to review a magistrate judge's report and recommendation where no objections have been filed. See, e.g., United States v. Reyna-Tapia, 328 F.3d 1114, 1122 (9th Cir. 2003).
Here, no objections were filed, and the deadline to do so has passed. Accordingly,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Report and Recommendation (ECF No. 31) is ACCEPTED AND ADOPTED in full.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Plaintiff's Motion for Reversal (ECF No. 26) is DENIED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Defendant's Motion to Affirm (ECF No. 27) is GRANTED. The Clerk shall enter judgment accordingly and close the case.
