IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA CHRISTEEN SMITH, : Case No. 4:13-cv-02122 : :

Plaintiff, : (Judge Brann) : v. : : (Magistrate Judge Mehalchick) UNITED STATES GYPSUM : COMPANY, :

: Defendant. : ORDER November 24, 2014 The undersigned has given full and independent consideration to the October 17, 2014 report and recommendation of Magistrate Judge Karoline Mehalchick (ECF No. 23). No objections or responses have been filed, so this Court has reviewed the R&R for abuse of discretion. Cf. Henderson v. Carlson , 812 F.2d 874, 878 (3d Cir. 1987) (although the court is not required to review magistrate judge’s report absent objections, “the better practice is for the district judge to afford some level of review to dispositive legal issues raised by the report”).

Because this Court agrees with Magistrate Judge Mehalchick’s recommendation, the Court will not rehash the reasoning of the Magistrate Judge and will adopt the report and recommendation in its entirety.
