presented herein, including those portions of the report to which objections have been made.3
Having reviewed each objection, the Court finds that they are without merit. After considering
the record in this case, the parties’ filings, and the applicable law, the Court adopts the Report
and Recommendation in its entirety. Accordingly, Defendant’s motion for withdrawal of
reference is DENIED.
