SHEPARD JOHNSON, PLAINTIFF,
CHESTER MITCHELL, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. United States District Judge
On May 4, 2012, the magistrate judge filed findings and recommendations herein which contained notice that any objections to the findings and recommendations were to be filed within fourteen days. (Dkt. No. 197.) No objections were filed. Accordingly, the court presumes 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).
The court has reviewed the file and finds the findings and recommendations to be supported by the record and by the magistrate judge's analysis. Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. The findings and recommendations (dkt. no. 197) are adopted in full;
2. Defendants Mode and Yarrington's motion to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction (dkt. no. 179) is GRANTED IN PART and plaintiff's claims against defendants Mode and Yarrington are SEVERED under Fed. R. Civ. P. 21 and TRANSFERRED to the United States District Court for the District of Vermont.
3. Defendant Ford Hermansen's motion to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction (dkt. no. 151) is DENIED.
