CIVIL ACTION NO. 3:15-CV-106
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
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.
