MEMORANDUM and ORDER
On September 12, 2011, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B), United States Magistrate Judge Philip M. Frazier submitted a Report and Recommendation ("the Report") recommending that the Court grant plaintiffs' motion for contempt, that defendant be held in civil contempt and that defendant be permitted to purge themselves of any finding of contempt by paying to plaintiffs the sum of $25 a day for each day after August 16, 2011, that they fail to comply with the July 28, 2011 order (Doc. 23).*fn1
The Report was sent to the parties with a notice informing them of their right to appeal by way of filing "objections" by September 30, 2011. To date, none of the parties have filed objections, and the period in which to file objections has expired. Therefore, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b), this Court need not conduct de novo review.

Thus, the Court ADOPTS the Report in its entirety (Doc. 23). The Court GRANTS plaintiffs' motion for contempt (Doc. 21). Further, the Court finds defendant in civil contempt and finds that defendant may purge itself of contempt by paying plaintiffs $25 per day for each day after August 16, 2011, that it fails to comply with the July 28, 2011 order. Lastly, the Court DIRECTS the Clerk of the Court to send a copy of this Order to the registered agent of Aura Contracting, as recorded with the Missouri Secretary of State: Tim Cory, Registered Agent of Aura Contracting, LLC., 38 Bear Cub Ct., Wentzville, MO 63385.
