MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
FREDERIC BLOCK, Senior District Judge.
On August 5, 2014, Magistrate Judge Reyes issued a Report and Recommendation ("R&R") recommending that the Court enter judgment against defendants for breach of contract and order defendants to transfer title to the subject property in accordance with those agreements. R&R at 10. The R&R stated that defendants' failure to files objections within fourteen days of receipt would preclude appellate review. See id. Plaintiff served a copy of the R&R on defendants by mail on August 5, 2014. See Docket Entry No. 17 (Affidavit/Affirmation of Service of Report and Recommendation). 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 Mario v. P & C Food Mkts., Inc., 313 F.3d 758, 766 (2d Cir. 2002) ("Where parties receive clear notice of the consequences, failure to 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 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). No such error appears here. Accordingly, the Court adopts the R&R without de novo review and directs the Clerk to enter judgment in accordance with the R&R.
