UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
September 17, 2012
JOHN E. TAYLOR, JR., PLAINTIFF,
LISA GAYLE, ET AL., DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: J. Phil Gilbert District Judge
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter comes before the Court on plaintiff John E. Taylor, Jr.'s "Motion to Object to Court's Order and Requesting Review of District Judge" (Doc. 164), which the Court construes as an objection to Magistrate Judge Philip M. Frazier's September 6, 2012, order (Doc. 162) denying Taylor's motion for discovery sanctions (Doc. 153).
A district court reviewing a magistrate judge's decision on nondispositive issues should modify or set aside that decision if it is clearly erroneous or contrary to law. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(a); 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(A). The Court may also sua sponte reconsider any matter determined by a magistrate judge. L.R. 73.1(a); Schur v. L.A. Weight Loss Ctrs., Inc., 577 F.3d 752, 760 (7th Cir. 2009).
The Court has reviewed Taylor's motion, the defendants' responses and Magistrate Judge Frazier's order. That order was not clearly erroneous or contrary to law. For this reason, the Court AFFIRMS Magistrate Judge Frazier's September 6, 2012, order (Doc. 162) and OVERRULES Taylor's objection (Doc. 164).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
J. Phil Gilbert
