MEMORANDUM & ORDER
In this breach of contract case, Defendants have repeatedly ignored their discovery obligations and violated the orders of Magistrate Judge William D. Wall. Judge Wall, in a Report and Recommendation dated July 28, 2011 (the "R&R"), recommended that Defendants' answer be stricken and that Plaintiffs be awarded a default judgment. The time for objections has passed, and this Court finds the R&R to be comprehensive, well-reasoned, and free from clear error.
Accordingly, the R&R is ADOPTED in its entirety. Defendants' answer shall be stricken and Plaintiffs are awarded a default judgment. Within forty-five (45) days from the date of this Order, Plaintiffs shall submit to Judge Wall papers in support of their damages. Additionally, the Clerk of the Court is directed to terminate Docket Entry 39.
Joanna Seybert, U.S.D.J.
