FREDERICK J. SCULLIN, JR. SENIOR UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT JUDGE
Currently before the Court is Magistrate Judge Peebles' January 5, 2015 Report and Recommendation, in which he recommended that this Court grant Defendant’s motion for summary judgment and dismiss Plaintiff’s amended complaint in its entirety. See Dkt. 46. The parties did not file any objections to this recommendation.
When a party does not object to a magistrate judge's report-recommendation, the court reviews that report-recommendation for clear error or manifest injustice. See Linares v. Mahunik, No. 9:05-CV-625, 2009 WL 3165660, *10 (N.D.N.Y. July 16, 2009) (citation and footnote omitted). After conducting this review, "the Court may 'accept, reject, or modify in whole or in part, the . . . recommendations made by the magistrate judge.'" Id. (quoting 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C)).
The Court has reviewed Magistrate Judge Peebles' January 5, 2015 Report and Recommendation for clear error and manifest injustice; and, finding none, the Court hereby
ORDERS that Magistrate Judge Peebles' January 5, 2015 Report and Recommendation is ACCEPTED in its entirety for the reasons stated therein; and the Court further
ORDERS that Defendant's motion for summary judgment, See Dkt. No. 42, is GRANTED; and the Court further
ORDERS that Plaintiffs amended complaint is DISMISSED in its entirety; and the Court further
ORDERS that the Clerk of the Court shall enter judgment in favor of Defendant and close this case; and the Court further
ORDERS that the Clerk of the Court shall serve a copy of this Order on the parties in accordance with the Local Rules.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
