CECCIII, District Judge.
This matter comes before the Court on the motion of defendant State farm Guaranty
Insurance Company (improperly named in the caption State Fann & Affiliates) (“State farm”) to
dismiss the Complaint ofpro se plaintiffs Victoria Ransome and Gary Smith (“Plaintiffs”) for
failure to answer interrogatories. (ECF No. 14.) Plaintiffs did not submit opposition to State
Farm’s motion. On November 1, 2016, Magistrate Judge Mark Falk issued a Report and
Recommendation (“R&R”) that the Court dismiss the Complaint without prejudice due to a lack
of federal jurisdiction and that in light of the lack of federal jurisdiction, State farm’s motion to
dismiss for failure to provide discovery be denied without prejudice. (ECF No. 16.) No
objections have been filed thereto. The Court has considered the submissions of the parties, and
Judge F alk’ s R&R, and for substantially the same reasons stated therein;
ORDERED this Court adopts Judge F alk’s November 1, 2016 R&R that the Complaint
be dismissed without prejudice for lack of federal jurisdiction and that State Farm’s motion to
dismiss for failure to provide discovery be denied without prejudice; and it is further
ORDERED the Clerk of the Court shall close the file in this matter.
