MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
PAMELA L. REEVES, District Judge.
This matter is before the Court on the Report and Recommendation filed by United States Magistrate Judge, C. Clifford Shirley [R. 15]. There have been no timely objections to the Report and Recommendation, and enough time has passed since the filing of the Report and Recommendation to treat any objections as having been waived. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); Fed.R.Civ.P. 72(b).
After a careful review of this matter, the Court is in complete agreement with the Magistrate Judge's recommendation that this civil forfeiture proceeding be stayed until the criminal investigation, and any related criminal prosecutions are completed.
Accordingly, the Court ACCEPTS IN WHOLE the Report and Recommendation under 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); Fed.R.Civ.P. 72(b). It is ORDERED, for the reasons stated in the Report and Recommendation, which the Court adopts and incorporates into its ruling, that the United States' motion [R. 10] is GRANTED, and this matter is STAYED pending further orders of the court.
The United States shall file a status report every six (6) months, informing the court of the status of the criminal proceedings.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
