United States District Court Southern District of Texas ENTERED UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS GALVESTON DIVISION IN RE: IN THE MATTER OF THE COMPLAINT OF MAERSK TANKERS, AS OWNER AND OPERATOR OF THE M/T CARLA MAERSK, FOR EXONERATION FROM OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, et al, Plaintiffs, VS. HOUSTON PILOTS, et al, Defendants. § § § § § § § § § § § § § January 05, 2017 David J. Bradley, Clerk CIVIL ACTION NO. 3:15-CV-106 ORDER Pending before the Court is Claimant Houston Pilots’ Motion for Summary Judgment. Dkt. 189. Counter-claimants Maersk Tankers (“Maersk”) as well as Conti 168 Schiffarts-GMBH & Co. Bulker KG MS and BBG-Bremer Bereederungsgesellschaft mbH & Co. KG (“Conti”) responded to the motion (Dkts. 198 and 196, respectively). Houston Pilots replied (Dkt. 205). On August 11, 2016, United States Magistrate Judge John R. Froeschner entered a Report and Recommendation (“R & R”). The R & R recommended granting Houston Pilots’ motion for summary judgment and dismissing the counter-claims brought by Maersk and Conti. Neither Maersk nor Conti objected to the R & R, though they had the opportunity to do so. Because the parties declined to object to the R & R, the Court ADOPTS its findings and conclusions. Houston Pilots’ Motion for Summary Judgment is therefore GRANTED. 1/2 It is hereby ORDERED that the counter-claims against Houston Pilots (Dkts. 147, 166) are hereby DISMISSED. SIGNED at Galveston, Texas, this 5th day of January, 2017. ___________________________________ George C. Hanks Jr. United States District Judge 2/2
