IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF UTAH
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND
DELTA AIRLINES, INC.,
Case No. 2:14-CV-00313
Judge Robert J. Shelby
This case has been referred to Magistrate Judge Dustin Pead pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §
626(b)(1)(B). Plaintiff Barbara Burgett shipped live dogs via Defendant Delta Airlines from
Budapest, Hungary to Salt Lake City, Utah in April 2008. Ms. Burgett brought suit for, among
other things, breach of contract, deceptive advertising and consumer sale practices, failure to
disclose, breach of good faith and fair dealing, and pain and suffering. Delta moved to dismiss
Ms. Burgett’s Complaint for failure to state a claim upon which relief may be granted. Fed. R.
Civ. P. 12(b)(6).
Judge Pead issued a Report & Recommendation on February 10, 2015. (Dkt. 17.) Judge
Pead recommended the court grant Delta’s Motion to Dismiss. Neither party submitted an
objection to the Report & Recommendation within the allotted time frame.1 In the absence of an
objection, the court may apply a “clearly erroneous” standard. Under this standard, the court
Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b); 28 U.S.C. § 636(b).
“will affirm the Magistrate Judge’s ruling unless [the court] . . . is left with the definite and firm
conviction that a mistake has been committed.”2
After reviewing the briefing, record, and relevant legal authorities, the court concludes
that Judge Pead did not err in his analysis. The court therefore ADOPTS the Recommendation
and GRANTS Delta’s Motion. (Dkt. 8.) Ms. Burgett’s claims are dismissed with prejudice, and
the Clerk of Court is directed to close the case.
SO ORDERED this 10th day of March, 2015.
