MIDDLE DISTRICT OF FLORIDA
SHAWN BECWAR, DANIEL STARR, MICHAEL WAGNER, THOMAS JULIUS, JAMES SCOTT CIPRI, Plaintiffs, -vsASHTON ORLANDO RESIDENTIAL, LLC, Defendant. ______________________________________ Case No. 6:08-cv-719-Orl-22DAB
This cause is before the Court on the Joint Motion for Approval of Settlement and Dismiss Action with Prejudice (Doc. No. 48) filed on February 20, 2009. The United States Magistrate Judge has submitted a report recommending that the Motion be granted. After an independent de novo review of the record in this matter, and noting that no objections were timely filed, the Court agrees entirely with the findings of fact and conclusions of law in the Report and Recommendations, with the exception of the amounts designated in the chart. Instead the Court approves the amounts set forth in the Affidavit of Precise Final Distribution of Settlement Funds (Doc. No. 50). The Court finds that settlement in the amount of $6,452.00 to Shawn Becwar for unpaid wages and liquidated damages, of $9,289.51 to Daniel Starr for unpaid wages and liquidated damages, of $7,369.01 to James Scott Cipri for unpaid wages and liquidated damages, of $3,355.03 to Thomas Julius for unpaid wages and liquidated damages, of $2,630.77 to Michael Wagner for unpaid wages and liquidated damages, and
$7,195.00 for attorney's fees and costs is a fair and reasonable resolution of a bona fide dispute over Fair Labor Standards Act issues. Therefore, it is ORDERED as follows: 1. The Report and Recommendation filed March 26, 2009 (Doc. No. 52) is
ADOPTED and CONFIRMED and made a part of this Order, except as to the distribution of the settlement funds contained therein. 2. The Joint Motion for Approval of Settlement and Dismiss Action with Prejudice
(Doc. No. 48) is GRANTED. 3. The settlement as set forth above is hereby APPROVED and this case is hereby
DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE. 4. The Unopposed Motion to consolidate for the Purpose of Effectuating Settlement
Confirmation (Doc. No. 45) is DENIED as moot. 5. The Clerk is directed to CLOSE the file.
DONE and ORDERED in Chambers, in Orlando, Florida on March 16, 2009. Copies furnished to: United States Magistrate Judge Counsel of Record
