CIVIL ACTION NO. 2:22-CV-00192
ORDER ADOPTING MEMORANDUM AND RECOMMENDATION
On December 2, 2022, United States Magistrate Judge Julie K. Hampton issued a
“Memorandum and Recommendation” (M&R, D.E. 25). The parties were provided proper
notice of, and opportunity to object to, the Magistrate Judge’s M&R. Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b);
28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); General Order No. 2002-13. No objections have been timely filed.
When no timely objection to a magistrate judge’s M&R is filed, the district court
need only satisfy itself that there is no clear error on the face of the record and accept the
magistrate judge’s M&R. Guillory v. PPG Indus., Inc., 434 F.3d 303, 308 (5th Cir. 2005)
(citing Douglass v. United Servs. Auto Ass’n, 79 F.3d 1415, 1420 (5th Cir. 1996)).
Having reviewed the findings of fact and conclusions of law set forth in the
Magistrate Judge’s M&R (D.E. 25), and all other relevant documents in the record, and
finding no clear error, the Court ADOPTS as its own the findings and conclusions of the
Magistrate Judge. Accordingly, ExxonMobil’s motion to dismiss (D.E. 7) is DENIED,
ExxonMobil’s motion to stay (D.E. 8) is GRANTED, Tullis’s motion for discovery (D.E.
Case 2:22-cv-00192 Document 26 Filed on 01/18/23 in TXSD Page 2 of 2

decision of the United States Supreme Court in Hewitt v. Helix Energy Solutions, Inc., 15
F.4th 289 (5th Cir. 2021), petition for cert. granted, 2022 WL 1295708 (U.S. May 2, 2022)
ORDERED on January 18, 2023.
