United States District Court, S.D. New York
August 8, 2014
ROBERT HICKS, Plaintiff,
JOSEPH BRACERO, Shield #173 Respondent.
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
ANALISA TORRES, District Judge.
On December 10, 2012, Plaintiff, Robert Hicks, filed this action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On January 16, 2013, the Court referred this matter to Magistrate Judge Henry B. Pitman for general pretrial proceedings. On December 9, 2013, Defendant, Joseph Bracero, filed a motion to change venue to White Plains. Plaintiff did not file opposition papers. After careful consideration, Magistrate Judge Pitman issued a Report and Recommendation ("R & R"), proposing that Defendant's motion to change venue to White Plains be granted. Despite notification of the right to object to the R & R, no objections were filed, and the time to do so has passed. See Fed.R.Civ.P. 72(b)(2). When no objection is made, the Court reviews the R & R for clear error. Santiago v. Colvin, 12 Civ. 7052, 2014 WL 1092967, at *1 (S.D.N.Y. Mar. 17, 2014). The Court finds no clear error. Accordingly, the Court ADOPTS Magistrate Judge Pitman's R & R in its entirety.
The Clerk of Court is directed to terminate the motion at ECF No. 18 and to transfer the case to White Plains.
