The opinion of the court was delivered by: LEWIS KAPLAN, District Judge
PRETRIAL ORDER NO. 291 (Certain Remand Motions)
In PTO 280, issued on June 3, 2004, and corrected on June 8,
2004, the Court adopted the May 17, 2004, report and
recommendation of Magistrate Judge Katz which recommended denial
of the remand motions in these cases on the grounds that there
was no reasonable possibility that plaintiffs could prevail
against the non-diverse defendants, including physicians,
pharmacies and sales representatives.
The Court became aware that plaintiffs had filed objections to
Judge Katz's report only after it issued PTO 280. The Court now
considers the objections de novo and finds them to be without
Accordingly, the objections to the report and recommendation
[00 Civ. 2843, docket item 2042] are overruled and the motions to
remand are denied.
