United States District Court, D. Oregon
March 12, 2015
MELISSA LEE, Plaintiff,
COLUMBIA COLLECTION SERVICES, INC., Defendant.
ANNA J. BROWN, District Judge.
Magistrate Judge Janice M. Stewart issued Findings and Recommendation (#71) on February 11, 2015, in which she recommends this Court grant in part and deny in part Defendant's Supplemental Petition (#64) for Attorney Fees. The matter is now before this Court pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B) and Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 72(b).
Because no objections to the Magistrate Judge's Findings and Recommendation were timely filed, this Court is relieved of its obligation to review the record de novo. See Dawson v. Marshall, 561 F.3d 930, 932 (9th Cir. 2009) . See also United States v. Reyna-Tapia, 328 F.3d 1114, 1121 (9th Cir. 2003)( en banc ). Having reviewed the legal principles de novo, the Court does not find any error.
The Court, however, corrects one minor typographical error in the Findings and Recommendation: Defendant incurred $167.70 in court-reporter expenses rather than $167.50. The Court, nonetheless, adopts the Magistrate Judge's recommendation to award the full amount of the court-reporter fees.
The Court ADOPTS Magistrate Judge Stewart's Findings and Recommendation (#71) with the correction noted above. Accordingly, the Court GRANTS in part and DENIES in part Defendant's Supplemental Petition (#64) for Attorney Fees and AWARDS to Defendant $660.00 in attorney fees and $167.70 in court-reporter expenses.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
