ORDER adopting 31 Report and Recommendation; directing the Clerk of the Court to enter judgments in accordance with this Order and close the file. Signed by Judge Marcia Morales Howard on 10/4/2019. (JW)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
MIDDLE DISTRICT OF FLORIDA
Case No. 3:18-cv-1177-J-34JBT
HARRIET I. WHITE and
ALLAN E. MINCEY,
THIS CAUSE is before the Court on the Report and Recommendation (Dkt. No. 31;
Report) entered by the Honorable Joel B. Toomey, United States Magistrate Judge, on
September 10, 2019.
In the Report, Judge Toomey recommends that Plaintiff be
dismissed with prejudice and discharged from any further liability regarding the subject
insurance policy; that Defendants be enjoined from instituting and/or prosecuting in any
state or federal court any other actions against Plaintiff regarding the subject insurance
policy; that the Clerk of the Court be directed to enter a default and default judgment
against Defendant Allan E. Mincey; and that the Clerk of the Court be directed to enter
final judgment in this matter. See Report at 1-2, 10. No objections to the Report have
been filed, and the time for doing so has passed.
The Court “may accept, reject, or modify, in whole or in part, the findings or
recommendations made by the magistrate judge.” 28 U.S.C. § 636(b). If no specific
objections to findings of facts are filed, the district court is not required to conduct a de
novo review of those findings. See Garvey v. Vaughn, 993 F.2d 776, 779 n.9 (11th Cir.
1993); see also 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). However, the district court must review legal
conclusions de novo. See Cooper-Houston v. Southern Ry. Co., 37 F.3d 603, 604 (11th
Cir. 1994); United States v. Rice, No. 2:07-mc-8-FtM-29SPC, 2007 WL 1428615, at * 1
(M.D. Fla. May 14, 2007).
Upon independent review of the file and for the reasons stated in the Magistrate
Judge’s Report, the Court will accept and adopt the legal and factual conclusions
recommended by the Magistrate Judge. Accordingly, it is hereby
The Report and Recommendation (Dkt. No. 31) is ADOPTED as the opinion
of the Court.
Plaintiff is DISMISSED with prejudice from this action and DISCHARGED
from any further liability regarding the Policy.
Defendants are ENJOINED from instituting and/or prosecuting in any state
or federal court any other actions against Plaintiff regarding the Policy.
The Clerk of the Court is directed to enter DEFAULT and DEFAULT
JUDGMENT against Defendant Allan E. Mincey that serves to terminate his
interest, if any, in the Policy and the interpleaded funds.
The Clerk of the Court is further directed to enter FINAL JUDGMENT in favor
of Defendant Harriet I. White, pay the funds deposited into the Court’s
registry, along with any interest, to Ms. White, and close the file.
DONE AND ORDERED in Jacksonville, Florida this 4th day of October, 2019.
