On January 31, 2011, United States Chief Magistrate Judge Candy W. Dale issued a Report and Recommendation, recommending that both Plaintiff's and Defendant's Motions for Attorney Fees and Costs be denied. (Dkt. No. 221.) Any party may challenge a magistrate judge's proposed recommendation by filing written objections within ten days after being served with a copy of the magistrate judges's report and recommendation. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C). The district court must then "make a de novo determination of those portions of the report or specified proposed findings or recommendations to which objection is made." Id. The district court may accept, reject, or modify in whole or in part, the findings and recommendations made by the magistrate judge. Id.; see also Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b). No objections to the Report and Recommendation were filed in this case. The Court has reviewed the Report and Recommendation, the parties' briefing on the Motions, briefing, and the entire record in this matter. Based upon this review, the Court finds the Report and Recommendation has correctly decided the Motions.

No. 221), should be, and is hereby, INCORPORATED by reference and ADOPTED in its entirety.
NOW THEREFORE IT IS HEREBY ORDERED as follows:
1) Plaintiffs' Motion for Attorney Fees (Dkt. No. 188) is DENIED.
2) Defendant's Motion for Attorney Fees (Dkt. No. 193) is DENIED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court shall DENY both Parties' respective Bills of Costs. (Dkt. Nos. 190, 191.)
