IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
October 21, 2011
ESCO MARINE INC., PLAINTIFF,
SS PACIFIC STAR; ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
ORDER AND COUNTER CLAIMS.
This matter was referred to a United States Magistrate Judge in accordance with Local Rule 302(c)(3).
On October 11, 2011, the magistrate judge filed findings and recommendations, which were served on all parties and which contained notice to parties that any objections to the findings and recommendations were to be filed within five days*fn1 after service of the findings and recommendations. The five-day period has expired, and defendants have not filed objections to the findings and recommendations.
Accordingly, the court presumes that any findings of fact are correct. See Orand v. United States, 602 F.2d 207, 208 (9th Cir. 1979). The magistrate judge's conclusions of law are reviewed de novo. See Britt v. Simi Valley Unified School Dist., 708 F.2d 452, 454 (9th Cir. 1983). Having carefully reviewed the file, the court finds the findings and recommendations to be supported by the record and by the proper analysis.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. The findings and recommendations filed October 11, 2011 (ECF 163) are adopted in full;
2. Plaintiff's motion for default judgment and interlocutory sale of vessel, construed as a motion for interlocutory sale of vessel only, filed on September 16, 2011 (ECF 148), is GRANTED; and
3. The proposed order filed by plaintiff on October 7, 2011 (ECF 162) is approved as to form and substance, except that the date of the sale is rescheduled to November 7, 2011.*fn2
IT IS SO ORDERED.
