MICHAEL J. DAVIS, Chief District Judge.
The above-entitled matter comes before the Court on Plaintiff's objections to Magistrate Judge Tony N. Leung's March 25, 2013 Order denying Plaintiff's Motion for Sanctions against Defendant and Counterclaim Plaintiff Thomas M. Tormey and Counterclaim Plaintiff Tormedco, Inc. for failing to comply with a discovery order and for fabricating evidence. [Docket No. 153] The Court has carefully considered the entire record in this matter and concluded that oral argument is unnecessary.
This Court will reverse a Magistrate Judge's order on a nondispositive issue only if that order is clearly erroneous or contrary to law. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(A); D. Minn. L.R. 72.2(a). This Court has reviewed the submissions and the record in this case and concludes that Magistrate Judge Leung's March 25, 2013 Order is neither clearly erroneous nor contrary to law. Therefore, the March 25, 2013 Order is affirmed.
Accordingly, based upon the files, records, and proceedings herein, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Magistrate Judge Leung's March 25, 2013 Order is AFFIRMED.
2. Plaintiff's objections [Docket No. 154] are DENIED.
