TINA NATTELL, Plaintiff,
CURRY COUNTY, et al., Defendants.
OWEN M. PANNER, District Judge.
Magistrate Judge Mark D. Clarke filed a Report and Recommendation, and the matter is now before this court. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B), Fed.R.Civ.P. 72(b). When either party objects to any portion of a Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation, the district court makes a de novo determination of that portion of the Magistrate Judge's report. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C); McDonnell Douglas Corp. v. Commodore Bus. Mach., Inc. , 656 F.2d 1309, 1313 (9th Cir. 1981).
Here, plaintiff objects to the Report and Recommendation, so I have reviewed this matter de novo. I agree with the Report and Recommendation that plaintiff has failed as a matter of law to show that defendants' actions caused Mr. Nattell's death, or that defendants acted with deliberate indifference.
Magistrate Judge Clarke's Report and Recommendation (#107) is adopted. Defendants' motions for summary judgment (##38, 43, and 47) are granted.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
