UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEW HAMPSHIRE
Direct Capitol Corporation
Case No. 16-cv-366-SM
American Tank Company, Inc.
and Lawrence Romero
O R D E R
No objection having been filed, I herewith approve the
Report and Recommendation of Magistrate Judge Andrea K.
Johnstone dated October 26, 2017, for the reasons set forth
The court adds only that the contract ("Master
Agreement", Para. 15) provides for the recovery of fees,
presumably including attorney's fees, associated with necessary
Direct Capitol Corporation’s (DCC) Motion for Default
Judgment (doc. no. 14) is hereby granted in part as to its
breach of contract claims against American Tank Company and
Lawrence Romero, awarded damages in the amount of $225,011.97,
and awarded costs in the amount of $552.51.
DCC’s request for
attorney’s fees is denied without prejudice to refiling a new
motion with the appropriate supporting documentation within
fifteen (15) days of the date of this order.
“‘[O]nly those issues fairly raised by the objections to
the magistrate's report are subject to review in the district
court and those not preserved by such objection are precluded on
School Union No. 37 v. United Nat'l Ins. Co., 617
F.3d 554, 564 (1st Cir. 2010) (quoting Keating v. Secretary of
Health & Human Servs., 848 F.2d 271, 275 (1st Cir.1988)); see
also United States v. Valencia-Copete, 792 F.2d 4, 6 (1st Cir.
1986) (after proper notice, failure to file a specific objection
to magistrate's report will waive the right to appeal).
Additionally, finding that the petitioner has failed to make a
substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right, the
court declines to issue a certificate of appealability.
U.S.C. § 2253(c)(2); Rule 11, Rules Governing Habeas Corpus
Cases Under Section 2254; First Cir. LR 22.0.
