This matter is before the Court upon the Reports and Recommendations of the United States Magistrate Judge (C-1-11-75 doc. no. 24 and C-1-09-758 doc. no. 75) to which neither party has objected. Upon a de novo review of the record, the Court finds that the Magistrate Judge has accurately set forth the applicable law and has properly applied it to the particular facts of this case. Accordingly, in the absence of any objections, this Court accepts the Report as uncontroverted.
