UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
MIDDLE DISTRICT OF FLORIDA
Case No: 6:15-cv-1199-Orl-41DAB
BRAVO FOODS LLC,
THIS CAUSE is before the Court on the parties’ Fourth Amended Joint Motion for
Approval of Settlement (Doc. 28), which seeks judicial approval of the parties’ FLSA settlement
agreement. See Lynn’s Food Stores, Inc. v. United States, 679 F.2d 1350, 1353–55 (11th Cir.
1982). United States Magistrate Judge David A. Baker submitted a Report and Recommendation
(the “R&R,” Doc. 29), which recommends that this Court grant the motion and approve the parties’
After an independent de novo review of the record and noting that no objections were
timely filed, the Court agrees with the R&R, as modified in two respects. First, to the extent the
settlement agreement purports to release “any and all claims which could have been raised, even
if they are not known to or recognized by Mr. Wise at this time,” (Settlement Agreement, Ex. 1 to
Fourth Am. Mot., Doc. 28, at 1), it will not be approved. Second, the parties’ request that the Court
retain jurisdiction to enforce the settlement agreement will not be granted; the parties offer neither
argument nor authority for doing so. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 7(b); M.D. Fla. R. 3.01(a).
Accordingly, it is ORDERED and ADJUDGED as follows:
