Scanlon issued a Report and Recommendation (“R&R”) recommending that plaintiff’s Motion for Default Judgment be granted against Defendants Parkway Medical, BY MD, JR Chiropractic, Bard Acupuncture, Ms. Bard, Dr. Craigg, Dr. Geris and Orion Collections (collectively, “Defaulting Defendants”), and plaintiff be awarded $2,773114.24 in damages, fees, and costs. No objections have been filed to date, and defendants’ opportunity to object has passed. Where there are no objections, the Court may adopt the R&R without de novo review. See Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149–50 (1985); Mario v. P & C Food Mkts., Inc., 313 F.3d 758, 766 (2d Cir. 2002) (“Where parties receive clear notice of the consequences, failure timely to object to a magistrate’s report and recommendation operates as a waiver of further judicial review of the magistrate’s decision.”). The Court must conduct de novo review if it appears that the magistrate judge may have committed plain error. See Spence v. Superintendent, Great Meadow Corr. Facility, 219 F.3d 162, 174 (2d Cir. 2000). No such error appears here. Accordingly, the Court adopts the R&R without de novo review and grants plaintiff’s Motion for Default Judgment. SO ORDERED. /S/ Frederic Block_________ FREDERIC BLOCK Senior United States District Judge Brooklyn, New York March 24, 2017 2
