United States District Court, S.D. Illinois
May 28, 2014
RANDY RUSSELL, Plaintiff,
CITY OF FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS, Defendant.
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
J. PHIL GILBERT, District Judge.
This matter comes before the Court on the Report and Recommendation ("R & R") (Doc. 37) of Magistrate Judge Donald G. Wilkerson recommending this Court deny plaintiff Randy Russell's motion to Stay (Doc. 21) and dismiss this case for lack of prosecution.
The Court may accept, reject or modify, in whole or in part, the findings or recommendations of the magistrate judge in a report and recommendation. Fed.R.Civ.P. 72(b)(3). The Court must review de novo the portions of the report to which objections are made. The Court has discretion to conduct a new hearing and may consider the record before the magistrate judge anew or receive any further evidence deemed necessary. Id. "If no objection or only partial objection is made, the district court judge reviews those unobjected portions for clear error." Johnson v. Zema Sys. Corp., 170 F.3d 734, 739 (7th Cir. 1999).
The Court has received no objection to the R & R. The Court has reviewed the entire file and finds that the R & R is not clearly erroneous. Accordingly, the Court ADOPTS the R & R (Doc. 37), DISMISSES this case for lack of prosecution, and DIRECTS the Clerk of Court to enter judgment accordingly.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
