IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
MELVIN LEWIS SEALEY,
BRANCH BANKING AND
CASE NO. 2:15-CV-837-WKW
On July 8, 2016, the Magistrate Judge filed a Recommendation (Doc. # 19) to
which Plaintiff timely filed objections (Doc. # 22). The court has conducted an
independent and de novo review of those portions of the Recommendation to which
objections are made, see 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). In the Recommendation, the
Magistrate Judge determined that Defendant properly removed this action from state
court based on diversity jurisdiction. Plaintiff’s objections do not address the
propriety of removal or the finding that the court has diversity jurisdiction. The
court concludes that the objections are without merit and that the Magistrate Judge’s
Recommendation is due to be adopted.
Accordingly, it is ORDERED that:
Plaintiff’s objections (Doc. # 22) are OVERRULED;
The Recommendation (Doc. # 19) is ADOPTED; and
Plaintiff’s Motion to Remand (Doc. # 4) is DENIED.
DONE this 25th day of July, 2016.
/s/ W. Keith Watkins
CHIEF UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
