Leen, (ECF No. 29), which recommends that Plaintiff Avnet Inc.’s Motion for 12 Final Judgment and Permanent Injunction by Default (ECF No. 25) be GRANTED in part and 13 DENIED in part. 14 A party may file specific written objections to the findings and recommendations of a 15 United States Magistrate Judge made pursuant to Local Rule IB 1–4. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B); 16 D. Nev. R. IB 3–2. Upon the filing of such objections, the Court must make a de novo 17 determination of those portions to which objections are made. Id. The Court may accept, reject, 18 or modify, in whole or in part, the findings or recommendations made by the Magistrate Judge. 19 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); D. Nev. IB 3–2(b). Where a party fails to object, however, the Court is 20 not required to conduct “any review at all ... of any issue that is not the subject of an objection.” 21 Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149 (1985). Indeed, the Ninth Circuit has recognized that a 22 district court is not required to review a magistrate judge's report and recommendation where no 23 objections have been filed. See, e.g., United States v. Reyna–Tapia, 328 F.3d 1114, 1122 (9th 24 Cir. 2003). 25 Here, no objections were filed, and the deadline to do so has passed.
