Reliance Insurance Co. v. Bay Island Yacht Charter Co.

1991 | Cited 0 times | D. Maine | July 16, 1991


Upon careful review and thorough consideration of defendant Ricciardi's letter to the Court dated June 26, 1991 in response to the show cause order entered on June 12, 1991, see Report of Final Pretrial Conference and Order, I conclude that said defendant's proffered explanation for his failure to file a pretrial memorandum and to appear at the final pretrial conference is insufficient to establish cause why he should not be defaulted. Accordingly, I recommend that default be entered against him.


A party may file objections to those specified portions of a magistrate judge's report or proposed findings or recommended decisions entered pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B) for which de novo review by the district court is sought, together with a supporting memorandum, within ten (10) days after being served with a copy thereof. A responsive memorandum shall be filed within ten (10) days after the filing of the objection.

Failure to file a timely objection shall constitute a waiver of the right to de novo review by the district court and to appeal the district court's order.

Dated at Portland, Maine this 16th day of July, 1991.
