My question involves court procedures for the state of: Federal
A Magistrate Judge was assigned for all pretrial maters. After cancel all the scheduled hearings and only "considered" the motions two parties filed, He entered a memo and recommendation which stated:
1. The court recommends that Plaintiff's motion for relief from judgment be denied
2. Plaintiff's motion to compel and sanctions defendant is denied
3. The court recommends that Defendants' motion to dismiss Plaintiff's amended complaint be granted (he granted plaintiff amend his motion to amend the complaint 45 days ago)
4. All other relief not specifically granted in this order is denied.
5. The court further recommends that any remaining dispositive motions be denied.
In this situation, does Magistrate judge can make above statements, such as represent court by using "court recommend" instead of using "I recommend"? Denied all the Plaintiff's motion for relief and grant defendant's motion for dismiss plaintiff's amended claims which he granted 45 days ago?
Based on 28 U.S. Code § 636 (b) 1 A:
"a judge may designate a magistrate judge to hear and determine any pretrial matter pending before the court, except a motion for injunctive relief, for judgment on the pleadings, for summary judgment, to dismiss or quash an indictment or information made by the defendant, to suppress evidence in a criminal case, to dismiss or to permit maintenance of a class action, to dismiss for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted, and to involuntarily dismiss an action."
a magistrate judge can not make those statements and judgment orders listed above, correct?
