United States District Court, E.D. New York
February 9, 2004.
JEAN DUFORT BAPTICHON, Plaintiff V NEVADA STATE BANK, et al., Defendants
The opinion of the court was delivered by: NICHOLAS G. GARAUFIS, District Judge
On January 15, 2004 Magistrate Judge Roanne L. Mann issued a
comprehensive, well-written, and well-reasoned Report and Recommendation
("R&R") recommending that the plaintiff's motion to amend his
complaint be denied and that defendant Nevada State Bank's motion to
dismiss be granted. The reason for these recommendations was that this
court has no personal jurisdiction over defendant Nevada State Bank.
There have been no objections to the R & R. Therefore, the court
reviews the R & R for clear error. Nelson v. Smith.
618 F. Supp. 1186 (S.D.N.Y. 1985). After careful review, the court finds no
clear error in Magistrate Judge Mann's R&R and therefore adopts the
R&R for the reasons stated therein. The plaintiff's motion to amend
his complaint is hereby DENIED, and the defendant Nevada State Bank's
motion to dismiss if hereby GRANTED.
