SUMMARY ORDER
Plaintiff-appellant Monica G. Persaud (“plaintiff”), pro se, brought this suit alleging various claims of employment discrimination against defendants-appellees St. Vincent’s Services, Allison Nelson, Adebayo Iyanda, and Janice Ashton (collectively, “defendants”). The District Court granted summary judgment for defendants with respect to each of plaintiffs claims. Plaintiff then brought this timely appeal. We assume the parties’ familiarity with the underlying facts, the procedural history of this action, and the issues raised on appeal.

We review an order granting summary judgment de novo.
We ask whether the District Court properly concluded that there were no genuine issues of material fact and that the moving party was entitled to judgment as a matter of law. See Miller v. Wolpoff Abramson, LLP., 321 F.3d 292, 300
(2d Cir. 2003). In determining whether there are genuine issues of material fact, we “resolve all ambiguities and draw all permissible factual inferences in favor of the party against whom summary judgment is sought.” See Terry v. Ashcroft, 336 F.3d 128, 137 (2d Cir. 2003) (internal quotation marks omitted).

We have considered each of plaintiffs arguments on appeal and have determined that they are rneritless. We therefore affirm the District Court’s grant of summary judgment to defendants for substantially the reasons set forth in the December 5, 2008 Report and Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge (insofar as that Report and Recommendation was adopted by the District Court in its March 31, 2009 order).

CONCLUSION
For the foregoing reasons, the March 31, 2009 judgment isAFFIRMED.
