MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
On August 24, 2012, Magistrate Judge Reyes issued a report and recommendation ("R&R") recommending that judgment be entered against the defendants in the total amount of $$221,015.58, but that plaintiffs' request for permanent injunctive relief and an audit of defendants' books be denied. The R&R recited that "[a]ny objections to the recommendations made in this [R&R] must be filed . . . within fourteen (14) days of receiving this R&R," and advised that "[f]ailure to file timely objections may waive the right to appeal the District Court's Order." R&R at 14.
The R&R was served on the defendants at their last known address on August 24, 2012. To date, no objections have been filed.
If clear notice has been given of the consequences of failure to object, and there are no objections, the Court may adopt the R&R without de novo review. See Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149-50 (1985); Mario v. P & C Food Mkts., Inc., 313 F.3d 758, 766 (2d Cir. 2002) ("Where parties receive clear notice of the consequences, failure timely to object to a magistrate's report and recommendation operates as a waiver of further judicial review of the magistrate's decision."). The Court will excuse the failure to object, however, and conduct de novo review if it appears that the magistrate judge may have committed plain error. See Spence v. Superintendent, Great Meadow Corr. Facility, 219 F.3d 162, 174 (2d Cir. 2000).
The R&R contains no error, let alone plain error. Accordingly, the Court adopts it without de novo review. The Clerk shall enter judgment accordingly.
