MARCO A. HERNANDEZ, District Judge.
Magistrate Judge Patricia Sullivan issued a Findings and Recommendation  on December 23, 2013, recommending that Defendants' motion to dismiss  be granted and that this action be dismissed without prejudice. Plaintiff filed timely objections to the Magistrate Judge's Findings and Recommendation. The matter is now before me pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) and Rule 72(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
When any party objects to any portion of the Magistrate Judge's Findings and Recommendation, as here, the district court must make a de novo determination of that portion of the Magistrate Judge's report. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); Dawson v. Marshall , 561 F.3d 930, 932 (9th Cir. 2009); United States v. Reyna-Tapia , 328 F.3d 1114, 1121 (9th Cir. 2003) (en banc).
I have carefully considered Plaintiff's objections and conclude that these objections do not provide a basis to modify the Findings and Recommendation. I have also reviewed the pertinent portions of the record de novo and find no error in the Magistrate Judge's Findings and Recommendation.
The Court ADOPTS the Magistrate Judge's Findings and Recommendation . Accordingly, Defendants' motion to dismiss  is GRANTED and this action is dismissed without prejudice.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
