UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEW JERSEY
July 30, 2008
BAYONNE MED REALTY, LLC, PLAINTIFF,
CITIZENS INSURANCE COMPANY OF AMERICA, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Greenaway, Jr., U.S.D.J.
On June 19, 2008, Magistrate Judge Madeline Cox Arleo filed a Report and Recommendation ("R&R"),*fn1 pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b) and L. Civ. R. 72.1(a)(2), wherein she recommended that the motion to amend the Complaint by plaintiff Bayonne Med Realty, LLC ("Plaintiff") be granted, and that Plaintiff's motion to remand likewise be granted. The time for filing objections to the R&R has expired, and no objections were submitted.
A magistrate judge's recommended disposition of a dispositive matter is subject to de novo review. In re U.S. Healthcare, 159 F.3d 142, 145-46 (3d Cir. 1998); Temptations, Inc. v. Wager, 26 F. Supp. 2d 740, 743 (D.N.J. 1998); see also FED. R. CIV. P. 72(b). This Court has reviewed the parties' submissions and the R&R under the appropriate de novo standard, and agrees with Magistrate Judge Arleo's analysis and conclusion. Therefore,
IT IS on this 30th day of July, 2008,
ORDERED that Magistrate Judge Arleo's R&R is adopted as the opinion of the Court; and it is further
ORDERED that Plaintiff's motion to amend the Complaint (Docket Entry No. 13) is GRANTED; and it is further
ORDERED that Plaintiff's motion to remand this action to state court (Docket Entry No. 6) is GRANTED; and it is further
ORDERED that a copy of this Order be served on all parties within seven (7) days of the date of entry of this Order.
JOSEPH A. GREENAWAY, JR., U.S.D.J.
