SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA
Case No. 20-23574-Civ-COOKE/GOODMAN
SCI FUNERAL SERVICES
OF FLORIDA, LLC., and
DENISE M. DAVIS,
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
THIS MATTER is before me upon U.S. Magistrate Judge Jonathan Goodman’s
Report and Recommendations on FLSA Settlement (“Report”) (ECF No. 28). The Parties’
Joint Motion for Approval of Settlement Agreement (ECF No. 17) was referred to Judge
Goodman pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(A). See ECF No. 18.
Judge Goodman recommends I find the parties’ settlement agreement to be fair and
reasonable and approve the settlement. Judge Goodman also recommends the action be
dismissed with prejudice and this Court retain jurisdiction to enforce the terms of the
Recommendation and the time to do so has passed. After reviewing the Plaintiff’s Motion,
Judge Goodman’s Report, and the Settlement Agreement in accordance with Lynn’s Food
Stores, Inc. v. United States, 679 F.2d 1350 (11th Cir. 1982), I find Judge Goodman’s Report
clear, cogent, and compelling.
Accordingly, Judge Goodman’s Report (ECF No. 28) is AFFIRMED and
ADOPTED as Order of this Court. It is hereby ORDERED and ADJUDGED as follows:
1. The Motion for Approval of Settlement Agreement (ECF No. 17) is GRANTED.
2. The Parties’ Settlement Agreement is APPROVED.
3. This case is DISMISSED with prejudice.
4. This Court shall retain jurisdiction to enforce the terms of the Settlement Agreement.
