UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
September 27, 2011
TRUSTEES OF THE SHEET METAL WORKERS LOCAL UNION NO. 28 BENEFIT FUNDS,
K&K CONSTRUCTION OF QUEENS COUNTY, INC.,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Spatt, District Judge.
The plaintiffs commenced this action on or about January 29, 2010, asserting various labor-related claims against the defendant. On March 28, 2011, the Court entered a default judgment against the defendant, and referred the matter to United States Magistrate Judge Arlene R. Lindsay for an inquest as to damages, appropriate injunctive relief, appropriate attorney's fees, and costs. On May 11, 2011, Judge Lindsay issued a thorough Report recommending that the plaintiff be awarded damages in the amount of:
* $104,427.61 in unpaid fringe benefit contributions;
* $49,772.51 in interest;
* $350.00 in costs.
To date, no objection has been filed to Judge Lindsay's Report and Recommendation.
In reviewing a report and recommendation, a court "may accept, reject, or modify, in whole or in part, the findings or recommendations made by the magistrate judge." 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C). "To accept the report and recommendation of a magistrate, to which no timely objection has been made, a district court need only satisfy itself that there is no clear error on the face of the record." Wilds v. United Parcel Serv., 262 F. Supp. 2d 163, 169 (S.D.N.Y. 2003) (citing Nelson v. Smith, 618 F. Supp. 1186, 1189 (S.D.N.Y. 1985)). The Court has reviewed Judge Lindsay's Report and finds it be persuasive and without any legal or factual errors. There being no objection to Judge Lindsay's Report, the Court adopts the Report.
For the foregoing reasons, it is hereby:
ORDERED that Judge Lindsay's Report and Recommendation is adopted in its entirety; and it is further
ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court is directed to enter a default judgment against the defendants in the amount set forth above; and it is further
ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court is respectfully directed to close this case.
