Under 28 USC 1782, a party to a proceeding in a foreign court may petition a district court to compel a deposition or production of documents from a resident of the district for use in the foreign proceeding.  This decision holds that since the only relief sought in such a proceeding is an order compelling discovery, a magistrate judge may not enter a final order on the motion for such an order.  Instead, the order is “case” dispositive.  The magistrate judge may issue only a report and recommendation that the district judge must review de novo.
