UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
MIDDLE DISTRICT OF FLORIDA
Case No. 6:19-cv-878-RBD-EJK
BANK OF AMERICA,
Defendant moved to strike Plaintiff’s jury trial demand, arguing the mortgage
executed by Plaintiff contained a jury trial waiver for all actions arising out of the
mortgage. (Doc. 55 (“Motion”).) On referral, U.S. Magistrate Judge Embry J. Kidd
recommends granting the Motion and striking the jury trial demand. (Doc. 95 (“R&R”).)
The parties did not object to the R&R and the time for doing so has now passed.
So the Court has examined the R&R only for clear error. See Wiand v. Wells Fargo Bank,
N.A., No. 8:12-cv-557-T-27EAJ, 2016 WL 355490, at *1 (M.D. Fla. Jan. 28, 2016); see also
Macort v. Prem, Inc., 208 F. App’x 781, 784 (11th Cir. 2006). Finding none, the R&R is
adopted in its entirety.
It is ORDERED AND ADJUDGED:
U.S. Magistrate Judge Embry J. Kidd’s Report and Recommendation
(Doc. 95) is ADOPTED, CONFIRMED, and made a part of this Order.
Defendant, Bank of America, N.A.’s Motion to Strike Jury-Trial Demand
(Doc. 55) is GRANTED.
