June 5, 2014
SIMON WILLIAMS, as Guardian Ad Litem for MALCOM WILLIAMS, an individual, Plaintiff,
KOHL'S DEPARTMENT STORES, INC., a business corporation; CINDY ISOM, an individual; and RYAN MYERS, an individual Defendants.
MARCO A. HERNANDEZ, District Judge.
Magistrate Judge Papak issued a Findings & Recommendation (#93) on March 31, 2014, in which he recommends the Court grant in part and deny in part Plaintiff's motion for imposition of sanctions, grant in part and deny in part Plaintiff's motion for partial summary judgment, and grant in part and deny in part Defendants' motion for summary judgment.
Defendants have timely filed objections to the Findings & Recommendation. The matter is now before me pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) and Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 72(b).
When any party objects to any portion of the Magistrate Judge's Findings & Recommendation, 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 Defendants' objections and conclude there is no basis to modify the Findings & Recommendation. I have also reviewed the pertinent portions of the record de novo and find no other errors in the Magistrate Judge's Findings & Recommendation.
The Court ADOPTS Magistrate Judge Papak's Findings & Recommendation [#93], and therefore, Plaintiff's motion for sanctions  is granted in part and denied in part; Plaintiff's motion for partial summary judgment  is granted in part and denied in part; and Defendants' motion for summary judgment  is granted in part and denied in part.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
