U.S. DISTRICT COURT
N.D. OF ALABAMA
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
) Case No: 2:13-cv-1847-KOB
MILES COLLEGE CORP.,
MEMORANDUM OF OPINION
The magistrate judge filed a report and recommendation on July 13, 2015, recommending
that the court grant the defendant’s motion to dismiss for lack of federal subject matter
jurisdiction because the Higher Education Act (HEA) does not create a private right of action.
(Doc. 10). The magistrate judge also recommends that the court dismiss the plaintiff’s state law
claims without prejudice. No party filed any objections.
The court has carefully reviewed and considered de novo all the materials in the court file,
including the report and recommendation. The court ADOPTS the magistrate judge’s report and
ACCEPTS her recommendation to grant the defendant’s motion to dismiss for lack of federal
subject matter jurisdiction. The court finds that, for the reasons stated in the magistrate judge’s
report, the plaintiff’s state law claims are due to be dismissed without prejudice so she can
pursue them in state court if appropriate.
The court will enter a separate Order in conformity with this Memorandum Opinion.
DONE and ORDERED this 5th day of August, 2015.
KARON OWEN BOWDRE
CHIEF UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
