UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
March 12, 2007
CSC HOLDINGS, INC., PLAINTIFF,
BETTY KATZ, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Hurley, District Judge
On December 5, 2002, this Court granted Plaintiff's motion for an entry of default judgment against defendant Betty Katz ( "Defendant") in the above-captioned case, and referred the matter to U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael Orenstein, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(3), for a report and recommendation as to damages and attorneys' fees. On September 27, 2004 Judge Orenstein issued a Report and Recommendation that Plaintiff be awarded a total of $5,438.00. On November 16, 2004, Defendant was served with a copy of the Report and Recommendation. More than ten days have elapsed since service of the Report and Recommendation, and neither party has filed any objections to it.
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b) and Fed. R. Civ. P. 72, this Court has reviewed the Report and Recommendation for clear error, and finding none, now concurs in both its reasoning and its result. Accordingly, this Court adopts the September 27, 2004 Report and Recommendation of Judge Orenstein as if set forth herein. The Court therefore directs that Plaintiff recover from Defendant the amount of $5,438.00, as itemized below, and that judgment be entered accordingly:
(1) $4,280.00 in statutory damages;
(2) $978.00 in attorneys' fees; and
(5) $180.00 in costs.
Upon entry of judgment, the Clerk of the Court is directed to close this case.
Denis R. Hurley, United States District Judge
