United States District Court, C.D. Illinois
December 16, 2014
JAMES HORNER, Plaintiff,
ELM LOCATING & UTILITY SERVICES, Defendant.
JAMES E. SHADID, Chief District Judge.
On November 18, 2014, a Report & Recommendation was filed by Magistrate Judge Tom Schanzle-Haskins in the above captioned case. More than fourteen (14) days have elapsed since the filing of the Report & Recommendation, and no objections have been made. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); Fed.R.Civ.P. 72(b); Lockert v. Faulkner, 843 F.2d 1015 (7th Cir. 1988); and Video Views, Inc. v. Studio 21, Ltd., 797 F.2d 538, 539 (7th Cir. 1986). As the parties failed to present timely objections, any such objections have been waived. Id.
The relevant procedural history is sufficiently set forth in the comprehensive Report & Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge. Suffice it to say that Plaintiff has brought this litigation alleging that he was the victim of unlawful employment discrimination. Defendant moved to dismiss Count III of the Complaint, arguing that the claim asserted in that count is moot as a result of the fact that Plaintiff has been paid the amount alleged to have been wrongfully withheld under the Illinois Wage Payment and Collection Act. The Court concurs with the Magistrate Judge's detailed discussion and recommendation.
Accordingly, the Court now adopts the Report & Recommendation  of the Magistrate Judge in its entirety. Defendant's Motion to Dismiss Count III  is GRANTED. Count III of the Complaint is DISMISSED. This matter is again REFERRED to Magistrate Judge Schanzle-Haskins for further proceedings.
