MEMORANDUM & ORDER
Plaintiffs, the Trustees of certain employee benefit funds (the "Funds"), sued Defendant Abbey Tool & Industrial Supply, Inc. to enforce Defendant's obligations under a collective bargaining agreement. Defendant has not appeared or otherwise defended this suit, and Plaintiffs moved for a default judgment. On July 30, 2012, Magistrate Judge Arlene R. Lindsay issued a Report and Recommendation ("R&R") recommending that a default judgment be entered and that Plaintiffs be awarded $7,929.96 in attorneys' fees and costs.*fn1 No objections were filed within the prescribed time.
Judge Lindsay's R&R is thorough, well-reasoned, and free of clear error. Accordingly, it is ADOPTED in its entirety. The Clerk of the Court is respectfully directed to enter judgment against Defendant and in favor of Plaintiffs in the amount of $7,929.96. The Clerk of the Court is further directed to mark this case CLOSED.
