The Court, having reviewed the Report and Recommendations of the Magistrate in this matter issued April 7, 1981, conducted a scheduled hearing on April 21, 1981, to consider any objections or views of the parties concerning said report, and having considered all objections, views, and supporting arguments submitted by the parties at or prior to such hearing, together with the pleadings and the record before the Magistrate, now hereby makes the following de novo determination of the matter.
