April 7, 2003
M.H. SEGAN LIMITED PARTNERSHIP, PLAINTIFF
TRENDMASTERS, INC., WAH SHING ELECTRONICS CO., LTD. AND WING SHING METAL & PLASTIC PRODUCTS, LTD., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Whitman Knapp, Senior United States District Judge
OPINION & ORDER
On February 11, 2003, we granted defense counsel's motion to withdraw and defendant's motion to withdraw its answer and for entry of a default judgment. On February 19, 2003, we referred the matter to Magistrate Judge Peck for an inquest. On March 25, 2003, Judge Peck issued a Report & Recommendation detailing the results of that inquest.
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) and Rule 72(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the parties shall have ten (10) days from service of this Report to file written objections. To date, no objections have been filed, nor have any requests for an extension of time in which to file objections been made.
A reviewing court "may accept, reject, or modify, in whole or in part, the findings or recommendations made by the magistrate." 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C). In a case such as this one, where 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." Nelson v. Smith (S.D.N.Y. 1985) 618 F. Supp. 1186, 1189; see also Pizarro v. Bartlett (S.D.N.Y. 1991) 776 F. Supp. 815, 817. We have reviewed the Report & Recommendation and are convinced that there is no facial error.
