UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
June 28, 2007
LAWRENCE H. THOMPSON, PLAINTIFF,
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Richard W. Roberts United States District Judge
Plaintiff Lawrence Thompson filed a petition to quash summonses issued by the defendant United States Internal Revenue Service. The petition was referred to Magistrate Judge John Facciola for determination. While the petition was pending, the United States withdrew the summonses and moved to dismiss the matter. The magistrate judge issued a report and recommendation dated May 22, 2007, in which he recommended that the United States' motion to dismiss be granted because the court lacked subject matter jurisdiction in the absence of a case or controversy, and that pending related motions be dismissed as moot. Neither party to this matter has filed objections and the time to do so has expired. Accordingly, it is hereby
ORDERED that the United States' motion  to dismiss this case be, and hereby is, GRANTED, and all other pending motions [3, 7] be, and hereby are, DENIED as moot.
