Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1), petitioner had ten days to file objections to the instant Report and Recommendation, which was filed and served upon all parties on October 10, 2008.

Although the time to object has expired, no objections have been received by this court.
Therefore, absent objection, the court adopts in its entirety the Report and Recommendation of the Hon. David E. Peebles, USMJ, dated October 10, 2008 (Dkt. No. 61). The court orders that the answer of defendant Thomas Piccirillo to plaintiff's complaint in this action (Dkt. No. 22) is stricken as it relates to that defendant. Defendant Thomas Piccirillo is declared in default in this action and plaintiff is hereby given permission to file a motion seeking the entry of an appropriate default judgment as against said defendant.
