The opinion of the court was delivered by: John Gleeson, United States District Judge:
Because I agree with the reasoning and conclusion of the Report and Recommendation of Magistrate Judge Levy ("R&R") and because no objections have been filed, I adopt the R&R in full. Accordingly, the plaintiffs' motions for sanctions are granted in part and the defendant is precluded from offering evidence in 09-CV-5660. The defendant is also hereby ordered to pay plaintiffs' attorney's fees related to their motions for sanctions and the subsequent enforcement of them, in both 09-CV-5660 and 09-CV-2058. I order plaintiffs' counsel to submit detailed fee applications and respectfully refer the calculation of attorney's fees to Magistrate Judge Levy. I deny plaintiffs' motions to the extent that they seek to hold the defendant in contempt of court.
John Gleeson, U.S.D.J.
