ANTHONY 57, INC., ANTHONY
SERRAGO and SABAL SPRINGS
This matter comes before the Court on Defendant Sabal Springs Homeowners’
Association, Inc.’s Unopposed Motion to Retain Supplemental Jurisdiction (Doc. 76). This
matter is ripe for review.
This is a collective action under the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) and Florida
Constitution. (Doc. 11). Plaintiffs sued Defendants Anthony 57, Inc., Anthony Serrago,
and Sabal for unpaid minimum and overtime wages.
Plaintiffs’ Complaint, but Anthony 57 and Anthony Serrago did not. (Doc. 29). Sabal then

filed a Crossclaim against Anthony 57 and Anthony Serrago for breach of contract,
indemnification, and contribution. (Doc. 49).
Thereafter, Sabal and Plaintiffs settled the case at mediation. (Docs. 71; 72). They
then moved for approval of their settlement agreement and requested that the Court
dismiss Plaintiffs’ claims with prejudice. (Doc. 75). The Court granted the motion and
dismissed Plaintiffs’ claims.
At the same time, Sabal requested this Court retain
jurisdiction over the state law claims in its Crossclaim. (Doc. 76).
Here, the only remaining claims after Plaintiffs’ federal claims were dismissed are
state law claims. And “[a] district court's decision whether to exercise . . . jurisdiction after
dismissing every claim over which it had original jurisdiction is purely discretionary.”
Carlsbad Tech., Inc. v. HIF Bio, Inc., 556 U.S. 635, 639 (2009); see also 28 U.S.C. §
After review, the Court declines to exercise supplemental jurisdiction.
Therefore, it will dismiss Sabal’s Crossclaim without prejudice.
Accordingly, it is now ORDERED:
(1) Defendant Sabal Springs Homeowners’ Association, Inc.’s Unopposed Motion
to Retain Supplemental Jurisdiction (Doc. 76) is DENIED.
(2) Defendant Sabal Springs Homeowners’ Association, Inc.’s Verified Crossclaim
(Doc. 49) is DISMISSED without prejudice.
(3) The Clerk of Court is directed to terminate any pending motions and deadlines
and CLOSE this case.
DONE and ORDERED in Fort Myers, Florida this 9th day of March, 2018.
