CATHERINE L. LINDERMAN, M.D. Plaintiff,
VONA HUGGINS NICHOLS, aka VONA E. HUGGINS; STONEWALL FARMS LLC; And DAVID CAINS, individually and d.b.a. STONEWALL FARM ARABIANS, Defendants.
MICHAEL J. McSHANE, District Judge.
Defendants Stonewall Farm LLC ("Stonewall"). Stonewall Farm Arabians, LLC, and David Cains ("Cains"), in his individual capacity and as doing business as Stonewall Farm Arabians (hereinafter referred to collectively as "The Stonewall Defendants") filed motions to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction and improper venue, or in the alternative, a motion to transfer venue to Arizona on September 18, 2013 [#48]. Magistrate Judge Coffin filed his Findings and Recommendation on the Stonewall Defendants' motions on November 12, 2013 (#60]. The matter is now before me. See 28 U.S. C.§ 636 and Fed.R.Civ.P. 72(b).
No objections to Judge Coffin's Findings and Recommendation have been filed. This relieves me of my obligation to give de novo review to the factual findings made by the Magistrate Judge. Lorin Corp. v. Go to & Co., Ltd., 700 F.2d 1202, 1206 (9th Cir.1982). See also Britt v. Simi Valley Unified School Dist., 708 F.2d 452, 454 (9th Cir. 1983).
Having now also reviewed the legal principles in this matter de novo, I find no error. THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that, I adopt Magistrate Judge Coffin's Findings and Recommendation (#60] as follows:
Defendants' motion to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction is denied.
Defendants' motion to dis'miss for improper venue is denied.
Defendants' alternative motion to transfer venue to Arizona is denied.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
