Sample v. Diecks, 885 F.2d 1099, 1106 n. 3 (3d Cir. 1989) (citing 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(c)). However, this only applies to the extent that a party's objections are both timely and specific Goney v. Clark, 749 F.2d 5" date_filed="1984-12-06" court="3rd Cir." case_name="Alvin E. Goney v. James E. Clark, Jr., Warden, Fayette County Jail">749 F.2d 5, 6-7 (3d Cir. 1984).

Chater, 990 F. Supp. 375" date_filed="1998-01-12" court="M.D. Penn." case_name="Cruz v. Chater">990 F. Supp. 375, 376-77 (M.D. Pa. 1998).
