NEW YORK CITY DEPARTMENT OF HOMELESS SERVICES AND LINDA GIBBS, AS COMMISSIONER OF THE AGENCY, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Johnson, Senior District Judge
Before the Court is a Report and Recommendation (the "Report"), prepared by Magistrate Judge Lois Bloom.*fn1 Judge Bloom filed the Report on September 1, 2006, and provided the parties until September 15, 2006, to file any objections. No objections have been filed.
A district court judge may designate a magistrate judge to hear and determine certain motions pending before the Court and to submit to the Court proposed findings of fact and a recommendation as to the disposition of the motion. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). Within 10 days of service of the recommendation, any party may file written objections to the magistrate's report. Id. Upon de novo review of those portions of the record to which objections were made, the district court judge may affirm or reject the recommendations. Id. The Court is not required to review, under a de novo or any other standard, the factual or legal conclusions of the magistrate judge as to those portions of the report and recommendation to which no objections are addressed. See Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 150 (1985).
As mentioned, no objections were filed within the allotted time period. Upon review, the Court adopts and affirms the Report. Defendants' motion for summary judgment is granted, and Plaintiff's complaint is dismissed in its entirety.
The Clerk of the Court is directed to close the case.
