ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
Magistrate Judge Arlene R. Lindsay issued a Report and Recommendation ("R&R") on August 27, 2009. As part of the R&R, Judge Lindsay warned that any objections were to be filed with the Clerk of the Court within ten days of service of the R&R. The time for filing objections has expired, and no party has objected. Accordingly, all objections are hereby deemed to have been waived.
Upon careful review and consideration, the Court ADOPTS the R&R in its entirety. Accordingly, the Clerk of the Court is directed to enter a judgment of default in favor of Plaintiffs, the trustees and fiduciaries of the Empire State Carpenters Welfare, Pension, Vacation, Annuity, Scholarship, Apprentice-Training, Labor-Management Cooperation and Charitable Trust Funds (the "Funds"), against Defendants, Geauga Commercial Construction Co. a/k/a Aquila Construction, Inc. and Auburn Interiors, Ltd. Additionally, Defendants are directed to permit and cooperate in an audit of its books and records, and to furnish to the Funds information, books, records and reports in accordance with ERISA and its obligations under the Agreement so that the Plaintiffs may calculate the fringe benefit contributions and/or wage supplements owed by the Defendants. Finally, the Court awards Plaintiffs attorneys' fees and costs in the amounts of $2,397.00 and $835.00, for a total award of $3,232.00.
