ORDER ACCEPTING FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS, AND RECOMMENDATION
OF THE UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
Pending before the Court is the October 12, 2023, Memorandum and
Recommendation (“M&R”) prepared by Magistrate Judge Peter Bray. (Dkt. No. 17).
Judge Bray made findings and conclusions and recommended that Plaintiff’s Motion for
Remand (Dkt. No. 3) be denied and that Defendant IBC Bank be dismissed from the
lawsuit. (Dkt. No. 17).
The Parties were provided proper notice and the opportunity to object to the M&R.
See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b). No party filed an objection. As a result,
review is straightforward: plain error. Guillory v. PPG Indus., Inc., 434 F.3d 303, 308 (5th
Cir. 2005). No plain error appears.
Accordingly, the Court accepts the M&R and adopts it as the opinion of the Court.
It is therefore ordered that:
Judge Bray’s M&R (Dkt. No. 17) is ACCEPTED and ADOPTED in its
entirety as the holding of the Court;
Plaintiff’s Motion for Remand (Dkt. No. 3) is DENIED; and
Defendant IBC Bank is DISMISSED.
It is SO ORDERED.
Signed on November 13, 2023.
