J.C. Research, Inc. v Speed Commerce, Inc.
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION as modified (Written Opinion). Signed by Judge Wilhelmina M. Wright on 10/17/2017. (TJB)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF MINNESOTA
J.C. Research, Inc., d/b/a Fogware,
Case No. 14-cv-3762 (WMW/SER)
ORDER ADOPTING AS MODIFIED
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
Speed Commerce, Inc., f/k/a Navarre
This matter is before the Court on the September 5, 2017 Report and
Recommendation (R&R) of United States Magistrate Judge Steven E. Rau. (Dkt. 85.)
No objections to the R&R have been filed. In the absence of timely objections, this Court
reviews an R&R for clear error. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b); Grinder v. Gammon, 73 F.3d
793, 795 (8th Cir. 1996) (per curiam). Having reviewed the R&R, the Court adopts the
R&R as modified to account for mathematical errors.
Plaintiff brought this suit to recover the value of inventory that Defendant
destroyed. Plaintiff submitted spreadsheets to establish its damages. The R&R compares
Plaintiff’s spreadsheets to invoices in the record, submitted by both Plaintiff and
Defendant during the course of this litigation, to verify Plaintiff’s calculations of its
damages. When reviewing the R&R, this Court identified errors in the calculation of
damages for two products, identified by “part numbers.”
Regarding part number 05922, the R&R determines that Plaintiff has
demonstrated damages of $35,458.84 for the loss of 2,662 units priced at $13.32. The
correct value for the calculation is $35,457.84.
Regarding part number 93724, the R&R calculates damages based on 1,839 units.
The correct number of units is 1,799, reducing Plaintiff’s damages by $800. Accordingly,
Plaintiff has established damages of $89,980 for part number 93724.
Because Plaintiff has demonstrated damages of $672,995.34, the Court adopts the
R&R as modified.
Based on the foregoing analysis and all the files, records and proceedings herein,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED:
Plaintiff J.C. Research, Inc.’s motion for default judgment, (Dkt. 76), is
The September 5, 2017 R&R, (Dkt. 85), is ADOPTED AS MODIFIED.
Judgment is entered against Defendant Speed Commerce, Inc. for
LET JUDGMENT BE ENTERED ACCORDINGLY.
Dated: October 17, 2017
