Plaintiff had 14 days to object to the recommendation; she filed no objection. “[N]o review is required of a magistrate judge’s report and recommendation unless objections are filed.” Schmidt v.

See Doc. 6. Nevada Local Special Rule 2-2 provides, “[t]he plaintiff shall immediately file with the Court written notification of any change of address. The notification must include proof of service upon each opposing party or the party’s attorney. Failure to comply with this Rule may result in dismissal of the action with prejudice.” Nev. Loc. Special R. 2-2. Plaintiff’s failure to immediately file with the Court a notification of her change of address is an additional justification for dismissal with prejudice. 28 2 25 26
