Opinion

Case No. 18-62833-Civ-COOKE/HUNT

02-23-2021

NATIONWIDE VAN LINES, INC., Plaintiff v. TRANSWORLD MOVERS. INC., et al., Defendants.


ORDER ADOPTING MAGISTRATE JUDGE'S REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION

THIS MATTER is before me upon the Report and Recommendation ("R&R") of the Honorable Patrick M. Hunt, U.S. Magistrate Judge (ECF No. 125), regarding Defendants' Motion for Sanctions, ECF No. 100, and Defendants' Motion for Attorneys' Fees, ECF No. 110. The Undersigned referred this case to Judge Hunt for all non-dispositive pretrial motions, fees, costs, as well as the specific motions at issue herein. ECF Nos. 8, 101, 113; see also 28 U.S.C. § 636; S.D. Fla. L.R., Mag. R. 1.

The docket text for ECF No. 100 states "Plaintiff's MOTION for Sanctions Pursuant to Rule 11"; however, that is incorrect. Defendants Transworld Movers, Inc. and Ohad Guzi filed the Motion for Sanctions at ECF No. 100 not Plaintiff. --------

In his R&R, Judge Hunt recommends that Defendants' Motion for Sanctions, ECF No. 100, and Defendants' Motion for Fees, ECF No. 110, both be denied.

I have reviewed Defendants' Motions, the briefing and accompanying exhibits, Judge Hunt's R&R, the Objections to Judge Hunt's R&R, the record, and the relevant legal authorities. Having done so, I find Judge Hunt's R&R to be clear, cogent, and compelling.

Accordingly, Judge Hunt's R&R (ECF No. 100) is AFFIRMED and ADOPTED as the Order of this Court. It is hereby ORDERED and ADJUDGED that Defendants' Motion for Sanctions, ECF No. 100, and Defendants' Motion for Fees, ECF No. 110, are both DENIED. DONE and ORDERED in chambers, at Miami, Florida, this 23rd day of February 2021.
