United States District Court, D. Oregon
December 2, 2014
TROY LUKENS, Plaintiff,
HEIDI STEWARD, et al., Defendants.
MARCO A. HERNNDEZ, District Judge.
Magistrate Judge Coffin issued a Findings and Recommendation  on September 11, 2014, in which he recommends that this Court grant Plaintiff's Motion for Leave to File Amended Complaint  and dismiss sua sponte defendants Michael D. Schrunk, Irene B. Taylor, and "the Office of Public Defense Service." The matter is now before me pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B) 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 Plaintiff's 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 Coffin's Findings & Recommendation . Accordingly, defendants Michael D. Schrunk, Irene B. Taylor, and "the Office of Public Defense Service" are dismissed; and Plaintiff's Motion for Leave to File Amended Complaint  is granted.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
