United States District Court for the District of Columbia
April 5, 2005.
KINGSLEY ANYANWUTAKU, Plaintiff,
EDWARD P. WILSON., et al., Defendants.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: COLLEEN KOTELLY, District Judge
On February 10, 2005, Magistrate Judge Facciola issued his
Report and Recommendation , in which he recommends that
Defendants Robert Cerullo and Houlon & Berman, LLC's Motion to
Dismiss or, in the Alternative, Motion for Summary Judgment 
should be granted.
As Magistrate Judge Facciola noted in his Report and
Recommendation, the parties were entitled to object to his
recommendations, and a failure to do so would constitute a waiver
of their right to appeal a ruling by this Court adopting his
recommendations. Under Rule 72(a) of the Federal Rules of Civil
Procedure parties are entitled to file objections to a magistrate
judge's order within 10 days after being served with the order.
The Court need not conduct a de novo review of those portions
of the Report and Recommendation to which no objections have been
raised. See Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 150 (1985).
As of April 5, 2005, no objections have been filed to the
Report and Recommendation. Accordingly, it is this 5th day of
April, 2005, hereby
ORDERED that Magistrate Judge Facciola's Report and
Recommendation is ADOPTED IN FULL; it is further ORDERED that Defendants' Motion to Dismiss, or, in the
Alternative, Motion for Summary Judgment  is GRANTED.
