The above matter comes before the Court upon the Report and
Recommendation (R&R) of United States Magistrate Judge Elizabeth Cowan Wright,
dated July 22, 2022. No objections have been filed to that R&R in the time period
The Court reviews de novo any portion of the R&R to which specific objections
are made. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); D. Minn. LR 72.2(b). In the absence of objections, the
