INTERNATIONAL UNION, SECURITY, POLICE & FIRE PROFESSIONALS OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
STEVEN ANGELO MARITAS, et. al., Defendant.
ORDER AND OPINION ACCEPTING THE MAGISTRATE JUDGE’S MARCH 31, 2015 REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION 
Nancy G. Edmunds, United States District Judge
Currently before the Court is the magistrate judge’s March 31, 2015 report and recommendation. The Court is fully advised in the premises and has reviewed the record and the pleadings. Neither party has filed objections. “[T]he failure to object to the magistrate judge’s report releases the Court from its duty to independently review the matter.” Hall v. Rawal, 09-10933, 2012 WL 3639070, at *1 (E.D.Mich. Aug. 24, 2012) (citation omitted). The Court nevertheless agrees with the magistrate judge’s recommendation. The Court therefore ACCEPTS and ADOPTS the magistrate judge’s report and recommendation.
It is further ordered that Defendant Marita's counterclaims [29, 31] are DISMISSED and Plaintiff's motion to dismiss counterclaims  is DENIED as moot.
