United States District Court, E.D. New York
March 2, 2015
COLLEEN SAMMY, Plaintiff,
FCLS CAR AND LIMOUSINE SERVICES INC., FCLS CORP., and WAEL ABDELATIF, Defendants.
NICHOLAS G. GARAUFIS, District Judge.
On November 4, 2013, Plaintiff Colleen Sammy commenced this action, bringing claims for unpaid overtime wages under the Fair Labor Standards Act, 29 U.S.C. §§ 201, et seq., and New York Labor Law§§ 650, et seq. (See Compl. (Dkt. 1).) The Clerk of Court entered the Defendants' default on January 21, 2014. (Clerk's Entry of Default (Dkt. 9).) On April 2, 2014, Plaintiff moved for a default judgment (Pl.'s Mot. for Default J. (Dkt. 13)), and the court referred Plaintiffs motion to Magistrate Judge Robert M. Levy for a Report and Recommendation ("R&R") pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b) and Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 72(b)(l). (April 7, 2014, Order (Dkt. 15).) Judge Levy conducted evidentiary hearings on June 23, 2014, and November 6, 2014, and received supplemental submissions on November 25, 2014, and December 9, 2014. (See R&R (Dkt. 29) at 1.) On December 8, 2014, Plaintiff filed an Amended Complaint. (Am. Compl. (Dkt. 27).) On February 10, 2015, Judge Levy issued an R&R recommending that Plaintiff's Motion be denied without prejudice to a similar motion on the Amended Complaint. (R&R at 2.)
No party has objected to Judge Levy's R&R, and the time to do so has passed. See Fed.R.Civ.P. 72(b)(2). (See also R&R at 2 ("Any objections to this Report and Recommendation must be filed with the Clerk of the Court, with courtesy copies to Judge Garaufis and my chambers, within fourteen days. Failure to file objections within the specified time waives the right to appeal the district court's order.").) Therefore, the court reviews the R&R for clear error. See Gesualdi v. Mack Excavation & Trailer Serv., Inc., No. 09-CV-2502 (KAM), 2010 WL 985294, at *1 (E.D.N.Y. Mar. 15, 2010); La Torres v. Walker, 216 F.Supp.2d 157, 159 (S.D.N.Y. 2000); cf. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(l). Finding no clear error, the court adopts the R&R in full. See Porter v. Potter, 219 F.Appx. 112 (2d Cir. 2007).
Accordingly, the court ADOPTS IN FULL the R&R. Plaintiffs Motion for a Default Judgment (Dkt. 13) is DENIED.
