UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
CONCRETE JUNGLE, LLC and
GREAT EXPECTATIONS, LLC,
Case No. 16-14114
Honorable Nancy G. Edmunds
ICON COMMERCIAL LENDING, INC.,
RANDALL J. FARR, and BRENT
ORDER ADOPTING THE MAGISTRATE JUDGE’S
JUNE 28, 2017 REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION 
In a report and recommendation ("R & R") issued on June 28, 2017, Magistrate Judge
Mona K. Majzoub recommends that the Court (i) deny Plaintiffs' motion for a default
judgment and to strike Defendants' answer to the complaint, and (ii) grant Defendants'
motion to set aside the clerk's entry of their defaults. No objections have been filed to the
R & R, and the deadline for doing so has passed.
“[T]he failure to object to the magistrate judge’s report releases the Court from its
duty to independently review the matter.” Hall v. Rawal, No. 09-10933, 2012 WL 3639070,
at *1 (E.D. Mich. Aug. 24, 2012) (citation omitted). Nonetheless, having reviewed the R &
R, the parties' underlying motions, and the remainder of the record, the Court fully concurs
in the Magistrate Judge's analysis, and therefore ACCEPTS and ADOPTS the Magistrate
Judge’s R & R.
Accordingly, it is hereby ordered, for the reasons stated in the R & R, that Plaintiffs'
February 28, 2017 motion for default judgment and to strike answer [Dkt. 14] is DENIED.
It is further ordered that Defendants' May 12, 2017 motion to set aside default [Dkt. 21] is
