MARK A. GOLDSMITH, UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
This matter is presently before the Court on the Report and Recommendation (R&R) of Magistrate Judge R. Steven Whalen, issued on February 28, 2015 (Dkt. 56). In the R&R, the Magistrate Judge recommends denying Defendants’ motion to dismiss and/or transfer venue (Dkt. 18) as to Defendant Freeman. The Magistrate Judge also recommends striking the motion as to Defendant Jedburgh Group International, LLC. The parties have not filed objections to the R&R, and the time to do so has expired. See Fed.R.Civ.P. 72(b)(2). The Court has reviewed the R&R and concludes that the Magistrate Judge has reached the proper conclusion for the proper reasons. Therefore, the Court accepts the R&R.
Accordingly, the Court denies Defendants’ motion to dismiss and/or transfer venue (Dkt. 18) as to Defendant Freeman, and strikes the motion as to Defendant Jedburgh Group International, LLC.
