UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
MIDDLE DISTRICT OF FLORIDA
FORT MYERS DIVISION
Case No: 2:13-cv-845-FtM-DNF
This matter comes before the Court on Defendant's Objection to Case
Reassignment to US Magistrate Judge (Doc. #28) filed on June 11, 2014. On April 22,
2014, Plaintiff’s Counsel filed a Consent to trial by U.S. Magistrate Judge (Doc. 25). As
such, the Court entered an Order approving the consent and the case was reassigned
to the US Magistrate Judge.
(Doc. 26, Doc. 27).
However, it appears Counsel
unilaterally filed the Consent form without the approval of the Defendant. Defendant
has now filed an Objection to the case reassignment. (Doc. 28). Since both parties do
not consent to the jurisdiction of the US Magistrate Judge, the approval Order shall be
vacated as outlined below.
Accordingly, it is now
1) Defendant's Objection to Case Reassignment to US Magistrate Judge (Doc.
#28) is GRANTED.
2) The Order Approving Consent to Jurisdiction (Doc. 26, and Doc. 27) is hereby
3) The Consent to Trial by a U.S. Magistrate Judge filed by Plaintiff’s Counsel is
4) The parties remain subject to the deadlines outlined in the FLSA scheduling
order. (Doc. 23).
DONE and ORDERED in Fort Myers, Florida this 11th day of June, 2014.
