Public Record Media, LLC v. U.S. Department of Justice

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT DISTRICT OF MINNESOTA


May 7, 2013

PUBLIC RECORD MEDIA, LLC, PLAINTIFF,
v.
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, DEFENDANT.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Michael J. Davis Chief Judge United States District Court

ORDER

The above-entitled matter comes before the Court on Defendant's objections to Chief Magistrate Judge Arthur J. Boylan's January 29, 2103 Order awarding Plaintiff $7,500 in attorney's fees and $350 in costs. In Plaintiff's response to Defendant's timely objections to the Chief Magistrate Judge's Order, Plaintiff also objected to the amount of the fee award and requested a higher fee award. However, a party objecting to a Magistrate Judge's order must file its objection within 14 days after service of that order, unless a different time is prescribed by the Magistrate Judge or District Judge. "[A] party may not thereafter assign as error a defect in the Magistrate Judge's order to which objection was not timely made." Local Rule 72.2(a). No different time was prescribed in this case, and Plaintiff filed its "objection," buried within its response to Defendant's objection, on February 25, 2013, more than 14 days after service of the order. Therefore, Plaintiff's objection is untimely, no explanation is given for this untimeliness, and Plaintiff's objection to the amount of the fee award is disregarded.

As to Defendant's objections, this Court will reverse a magistrate judge's order on a nondispositive issue if it is clearly erroneous or contrary to law. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(A); D. Minn. L.R. 72.2(a). The Court has reviewed the submissions and the record in this case and concludes that Chief Magistrate Judge Boylan's January 29, 2013 Order is neither clearly erroneous nor contrary to law. Therefore, the Order is affirmed.

Accordingly, based upon the files, records, and proceedings herein, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED:

1. Chief United States Magistrate Judge Arthur J. Boylan's January 29, 2013 Order [Docket No. 29] is AFFIRMED.

2. Defendant's objections to that Order [Docket No. 33] are OVERRULED.
