IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE
SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
JOHNNIE MAE SAWYER, as daughter
and Administrator of the Estate
of Arthur Waters, Deceased,
SYLVIA COLLINS, BOBBY SANDERS,
and JAMES HOOD,
CIVIL ACTION NO. 2:12-0020-KD-M
The Report and Recommendation dated November 2, 2012 (doc. 61) is now before the
Court upon the decision by the Supreme Court of Alabama to decline to answer the certified
question (doc. 101). See Price v. Time, Inc., 416 F. 3d 1327, 1334 (11th Cir. 2005) (The
Supreme Court of Alabama declined to answer the certified question and that decision “left the
district court with no choice but to answer the state law question itself[.]”).
Therefore, after due and proper consideration of all pleadings in this file, and a de novo
determination of those portions of the Recommendation to which objection is made, the
Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge made under 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B) is adopted as the
opinion of this Court. Accordingly, defendants’ Sylvia Collins and Bobby Sanders motion to
dismiss the common law negligence claims against them (doc. 40; doc. 41, pp. 11-12; doc. 56;
doc. 57) is DENIED.
DONE this 5th day of June 2013.
