DOROTHY M. WATTS and
TED F. WATTS
ORDER ADOPTING MAGISTRATE JUDGE’S REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
On October 30, 2014, Deutsche Bank National Trust Company filed this lawsuit against
the Defendants, Dorothy M. Watts and Ted F. Watts. (Doc. No. 1.) Pursuant to General Order
14-10, the case was assigned to the Honorable Zack Hawthorn, United States Magistrate Judge on
October 31, 2014.
The Defendants have not answered or otherwise appeared in the case.
Accordingly, Deutsche Bank requested an entry of default, and the clerk of court made such entry
on February 19, 2015. Deutsche Bank filed a “Motion for Default Judgment” (Doc. No. 9) on
March 24, 2015 and then filed an “Amended Motion for Default Judgment” (Doc. No. 15) on June
19, 2015. Deutsche Bank has since amended its complaint (Doc. No. 17) and filed a “Second
Motion for Default Judgment.” (Doc. No. 18.)
The court has received and considered the report from the magistrate judge, who
recommends that, in light of Deutsche Bank’s amended complaint and second motion for default
judgment, Deutsche Bank’s “Motion for Default Judgment” (Doc. No. 9) and “Amended Motion
for Default Judgment” (Doc. No. 15) be denied as moot. (Doc. No. 19.) No objections to the
report and recommendation have been filed, and the Court’s independent review confirms that the
magistrate judge’s analysis is correct.
It is, therefore, ORDERED that the report and recommendation of the magistrate judge
(Doc. No. 19) is ADOPTED, and Deutsche Bank’s “Motion for Default Judgment” (Doc. No. 9)
and “Amended Motion for Default Judgment” (Doc. No. 15) are DENIED AS MOOT.
SIGNED this 5th day of October, 2015.
MICHAEL H. SCHNEIDER
UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
