DECISION and ORDER
This matter comes before the Court following a Report-Recommendation filed on July 17, 2012 by the Honorable Randolph F. Treece, United States Magistrate Judge, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b) and Northern District of New York Local Rule 72.3(d). Dkt. No. 16 ("Report-Recommendation").
Within fourteen days after a party has been served with a copy of a magistrate judge's report-recommendation, the party "may serve and file specific, written objections to the proposed findings and recommendations." FED. R. CIV. P. 72(b); N.D.N.Y. L.R. 72.1(c). "If no objections are filed . . . reviewing courts should review a report and recommendation for clear error." Edwards v. Fischer, 414 F. Supp. 2d 342, 346-47 (S.D.N.Y. 2006) (citations omitted).
Here, no objections have been raised in the allotted time with respect to Magistrate Judge Treece's Report-Recommendation. After examining the record, the Court has determined that the Report-Recommendation is not subject to attack for clear error or manifest injustice.
Accordingly, it is hereby:
ORDERED, that the Report-Recommendation (Dkt. No. 41) is APPROVED and ADOPTED in its ENTIRETY; and it is further
ORDERED, that Defendants' Motion to Dismiss (Dkt. No. 27) is DENIED and that Defendants are directed to respond only to the handwritten portion of the Complaint (Dkt. No. 1-1); and it is further
ORDERED, that the Clerk of the Court update the Docket Report so that the names of the following Defendants are corrected: Defendant Berggen's name should be spelled "Bergen"; Defendant Sharon Lockridge should be changed to "Sara Nephew f/k/a Sara Loughran"; and Defendant Batter's name should be spelled "Battu"; and it is further
ORDERED, that the Clerk of the Court serve a copy of this Decision and Order upon the parties to this action.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
