DECISION and ORDER
This matter comes before the Court following a Report-Recommendation filed on January 30, 2012, by the Honorable Randolph F. Treece, United States Magistrate Judge. Dkt. No. 27 ("Report-Recommendation").*fn1 Both Plaintiffs and Defendants have submitted Status Reports before the Court indicating that they do not object to Judge Treece's findings in the Report-Recommendation. Dkt. Nos. 28, 29.
"A [district] judge . . . 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). After examining the record, the Court has determined that the Report-Recommendation is not subject to attack for plain error or manifest injustice. In light of Judge Treece's thorough consideration of the parties' joint stipulation and the proceedings in this matter, and both parties' submissions stating that they have no objections to the Report-Recommendation, the Court finds that the proposed settlement "represents a fair and reasonable resolution" of their dispute under the Fair Labor Standards Act, 29 U.S.C. § 210, et seq. Peralta v. Allied Contracting II Corp., No. 09-CV-953, 2011 WL 3625501, at *1 (E.D.N.Y. Aug. 17, 2011); see also Bouzzi v. F & J Pine Rest., LLC, No. 10-CV-0457, 2012 WL 85137, at *1 (E.D.N.Y.

Inc., No. 07 Civ. 8779, 2009 WL 398861, at *1 (S.D.N.Y. Feb. 18, 2009).

ADOPTED in its entirety; and it is further
ORDERED, that the Stipulation of settlement (Dkt. No. 25), and all of its terms, is APPROVED; and it is further
