UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
MIDDLE DISTRICT OF FLORIDA
Case No. 6:22-cv-282-RBD-DCI
WASTE PRO OF FLORIDA, INC.,
In this Fair Labor Standards Act case, the Court previously approved the
parties’ settlement. Plaintiff now moves the Court to determine his entitlement to
fees and costs. (Doc. 27 (“Motion”).) On referral, U.S. Magistrate Judge Daniel C.
Irick entered a Report and Recommendation submitting that the Court should
grant the Motion. (Doc. 29 (“R&R”).) The time has passed and there were no
objections, so the Court examines the R&R for clear error only. See Macort v. Prem,
Inc., 208 F. App’x 781, 784 (11th Cir. 2006). Finding none, the R&R is due to be
adopted in its entirety.
Accordingly, it is ORDERED AND ADJUDGED:
The R&R (Doc. 29) is ADOPTED AND CONFIRMED and made a
part of this Order in its entirety.
Plaintiff’s Motion (Doc. 27) is GRANTED.
Plaintiff is ENTITLED to attorney’s fees and costs under 29 U.S.C.
§ 216(b) as the prevailing party.
Plaintiff is DIRECTED to file a supplemental motion on the amount
of fees and costs within forty-five days of the date of this Order,
pursuant to Local Rule 7.01(c).
DONE AND ORDERED in Chambers in Orlando, Florida, on September
