CASE NO. 5:17-cv-113-RWS-CMC
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
OF UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
The above-entitled and numbered civil action was referred to United States Magistrate
Judge Caroline M. Craven pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636. The Report and Recommendation
(Docket No. 39), which contains Judge Craven’s proposed findings of fact and conclusions of
law, has been presented to the undersigned for consideration.
In her Report and
Recommendation, the Magistrate Judge recommends denying Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss for
Failure to State a Claim. No objections to the Report and Recommendation were filed within the
prescribed time period. See FED. R. CIV. P. 72(b)(2).
The Court is of the opinion that the findings and conclusions of the Magistrate Judge are
correct. Plaintiffs have sufficiently pleaded facts to allege that each Defendant owed a
duty to Michael Sabbie, and that those duties were breached. Accepting all well-pleaded facts as
true and viewing them in the light most favorable to Plaintiffs, the Court agrees with the
Magistrate Judge that Plaintiffs have stated a plausible claim against Defendants.
Finding no plain error in the findings and conclusions of the Magistrate Judge, the Court
hereby ADOPTS the Report and Recommendation in its entirety.
Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss for Failure to State a Claim (Docket No. 13) is DENIED.
So ORDERED and SIGNED this 30th day of November, 2017.
ROBERT W. SCHROEDER III
UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
