UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
MIDDLE DISTRICT OF FLORIDA
Case No: 6:15-cv-944-Orl-41DAB
HAIRCOLORXPERTS, LLC and
THIS CAUSE is before the Court on the parties’ Joint Motion for Approval of the
Settlement Agreement (“Joint Motion,” Doc. 23). United States Magistrate Judge David A. Baker
issued a Report and Recommendation (Doc. 24), which recommends that the parties’ motion be
granted and that the settlement agreement be approved. 1
After an independent de novo review of the record and noting that no objections were
timely filed, this Court agrees with the recommendation.
Therefore, it is ORDERED and ADJUDGED as follows:
1. The Report and Recommendation (Doc. 24) is ADOPTED and CONFIRMED.
Apart from releasing the pending Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) claims, the parties
appear to have separately agreed to release a myriad of non-pending claims in consideration for
$100.00. The Court expresses no opinion as to the validity of such an agreement. It goes without
saying that such a release was not in consideration for the FLSA damages. See Shearer v. Estep
Const., Inc., No. 6:14-cv-1658-Orl-41GJK, 2015 WL 2402450, at *3–4 (M.D. Fla. May 20, 2015).
