Riley v. El Dorado School Board

United States District Court, Western District of Arkansas, El Dorado Division

April 8, 2015

LAKENYA RILEY PLAINTIFF
v.
EL DORADO SCHOOL BOARD, et al. DEFENDANTS

JUDGMENT

Susan O. Hickey, United States District Judge

Before the Court is the Report and Recommendation filed March 20, 2015, by the Honorable Barry A. Bryant, United States Magistrate Judge for the Western District of Arkansas. (ECF No. 52). Judge Bryant recommends that Defendants’ Motions for Sanctions (ECF Nos. 27 & 30) be granted. Judge Bryant states in his Report and Recommendation that Plaintiff failed to appear for her own deposition and has consistently failed to fully comply with this Court’s orders to respond to written discovery. Judge Bryant recommends that the Court impose monetary sanctions in the amount of $1, 777.91 (the cost to Defendants for Plaintiff’s failure to appear for her deposition) or that this action be dismissed with prejudice for Plaintiff’s failure to follow orders of the Court and failure to appear at her own deposition.

The parties have not filed objections to the Report and Recommendation, and the time to object has passed. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). Therefore, the Court adopts the Report and Recommendation in toto. Defendants’ Motions for Sanctions (ECF Nos. 27 & 30) should be and hereby are GRANTED. The Court finds that the dismissal of this action with prejudice is the appropriate sanction to be imposed in this case. Accordingly, Plaintiff’s claims are hereby DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
