GEORGE B. DANIELS, United States District Judge:
Pro se Plaintiff Alice Carrington brought this action alleging employment discrimination
and retaliation on October 12, 2016 pursuant to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 ("Title
VII") against Defendants Jeannette Mota and the City of New York. (Compl., ECF No. 2.) On
December 12, 2016 this matter was referred to Magistrate Judge Cott. (ECF No. 8.) Defendants
moved to dismiss the Complaint pursuant to Rule 12(b)(6) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure
for failure to state a claim. (Mot. to Dismiss, ECF No. 16.) Plaintiff did not file a response to the
motion. Before this Court is Magistrate Judge Cott's August 31, 2017 Report and
Recommendation ('"Report," ECF No. 37), recommending that Defendants' motion to dismiss be
granted but that Plaintiff be given permission to amend her complaint within 30 days of an order
adopting the Report. (See Report at 1.) 1 This Court adopts the Report in its entirety.
This Court may accept, reject, or modify, in whole or in part, the findings set forth in the
Report. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b )(1 )(C). When no party files objections to a report, the Court may adopt

(S.D.N.Y. 1985)); Wilds v. United Parcel Service, Inc., 262 F. Supp. 2d 163, 169 (S.D.N .Y. 2003)
("To accept the report and recommendation of a magistrate, to which no timely objection has been
made, a district court need only satisfy itself that there is no clear error on the face of the record.'')
(internal citations and quotation marks omitted). Magistrate Judge Cott advised the parties that
failure to file timely objections to the Report would constitute a waiver of those objections on
appeal. (Report at 37); see also 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(l)(C); Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b). No objections to
the Report have been filed. The Report contains no clear error of law.
Plaintiff has not alleged that she suffered an adverse employment action motivated by
discriminatory intent or a retaliatory motive. Additionally, Plaintiff's factual allegations do not
create a plausible inference that she has been subject to a hostile work environment. for the
reasons stated in Magistrate Judge Cott's Report, Defendants' motion to dismiss is GRANTED.
Plaintiff may amend her complaint within 30 days of this Order, if amendment would not be Cutile.
