This matter is before the Court on the Report and Recommendation [R. 23] filed

*** *** *** ***

by United States Magistrate Judge Edward B. Atkins. The Report and Recommendation

addresses Plaintiff Anthony Bishop’s Application for Fees and Expenses pursuant to the

Equal Access to Justice Act, 28 U.S.C. § 2412(d). Judge Atkins advises that Bishop’s

Application be granted in the amount of $2,635.00 in fees and $415.00 in costs. [R. 23,

at 1.]

Judge Atkins’ Report also advises the parties that any objections must be filed

within fourteen (14) days of service. [Id.] The time to file objections has passed, and

neither party has objected nor sought an extension of time to do so.



Generally, this Court must make a de novo determination of those portions of the

Report and Recommendation to which objections are made. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(c).

When no objections are made, this Court is not required to “review . . . a magistrate’s

factual or legal conclusions, under a de novo or any other standard . . . .” See Thomas v.

Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 151 (1985). Parties who fail to object to a magistrate’s report and

Case: 2:10-cv-00081-GFVT-EBA Doc #: 24 Filed: 06/04/13 Page: 2 of 2 - Page ID#: 153

recommendation are also barred from appealing a district court’s order adopting that

report and recommendation. United States v.Walters, 638 F.2d 947 (6th Cir. 1981).

Nevertheless, this Court has examined the record, and agrees with the Magistrate Judge’s

Report and Recommendation.

Accordingly, the Court being sufficiently and otherwise advised, it is hereby

ORDERED as follows:



(1)

The Magistrate Judge’s Report and Recommendation [R. 23] is

ADOPTED as the opinion of this Court; and



(2)

Bishop’s Application for Fees and Expenses pursuant to the Equal Access

to Justice Act [R. 19; R. 21] is GRANTED.

This 4th day of June, 2013.
