MIDDLE DISTRICT OF FLORIDA
FORT MYERS DIVISION
Case No: 2:15-cv-276-FtM-38DNF
CROWN BATH CORP.,
This matter comes before the Court on the Plaintiff, Anthony Ciolli, and the
Defendant, Crown Bath Corporation's Joint Dismissal with Prejudice (Doc. #11) filed on
June 26, 2015. Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(a)(1)(A), allows a plaintiff to dismiss
a case without a court order. The Rule reads in pertinent part:
Subject to Rules 23(e), 23.1, 23.2 and 66 and any applicable federal

Embarq Mgmt. Co., 715 F. Supp. 2d 1222 (M.D. Fla. 2009).
Generally when a claim under the FLSA is settled, the Court must review the
settlement agreement to ensure that it is fair and reasonable. Lynn’s Food Stores, Inc. v.
United States, 679 F.2d 1350, 1352-1355 (11th Cir. 1982), However, in this instance,
Plaintiff represents to the Court that his FLSA claim has been settled in full without
As the parties agree that Plaintiff has obtained full relief under this
agreement, there is no compromise to review, therefore, the settlement is per se fair and
reasonable. Stevenson v. RBC Bank USA, Inc., 2011 WL 4412155, *2 (M.D. Fla. August
19, 2011). The Court will dismiss the FLSA Complaint with prejudice without the need to
review the settlement for fairness.
Accordingly it is hereby
The Plaintiff, Anthony Ciolli and the Defendant, Crown Bath Corporation's Joint
Dismissal with Prejudice (Doc. #11) is GRANTED. The case is hereby DISMISSED with
prejudice. The Clerk of the Court is directed to enter judgment accordingly, terminate all
pending motions and deadlines, and close the file.
