Case Number: 2:20-cv-00535-SPC-MRM
Judge: Sheri Polster Chappell
Court: United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida (Lee County)
Defendant's Attorney: Stephen C. Schahrer
Description: Fort Myers, Florida employment law lawyer represented Plaintiff, Ana Reyes, who sued James P. Morrissette and M.T. Lotz, LLC on Fair Labor Standards Act violation theories.
Outcome: Before the Court is the parties' Joint Stipulation of Dismissal With Prejudice. (Doc. 29). Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(a)(1)(A)(ii) allows a plaintiff to dismiss an action voluntarily if a stipulation of dismissal is signed by all parties who have appeared. This dismissal is effective upon filing and requires no further act by the Court. See Anago Franchising, Inc. v. Shaz, LLC, 677 F.3d 1272, 1278 (11th Cir. 2012). Because there have been no compromise of Plaintiff's FLSA claims, no judicial review is required. See Lynn's Food Store, Inc. v. United States, 679 F.2d 1350 (11th Cir. 1982). Accordingly, this action is DISMISSED with prejudice. The Clerk is DIRECTED to enter judgment, deny all pending motions as moot, terminate all deadlines, and close the case. Signed by Judge Sheri Polster Chappell on 4/6/2021. (KRH) (Entered: 04/06/2021)
