United States District Court, M.D. Pennsylvania
February 20, 2014
CAROL G. DIAMOND, and HERBERT S. DIAMOND Plaintiffs,
CENTER TWO CENTER HOLDINGS, INC., CONSOLIDATED LUMBER TRANSPORT, INC., JRC TRANSPORTATION, INC., and ERWIN J. ADAMS, Defendants.
MATTHEW W. BRANN, District Judge.
The undersigned has given full and independent consideration to the December 16, 2013 report and recommendation of Chief Magistrate Judge Martin C. Carlson. ECF No. 16. No objections have been filed.
Because this Court agrees with Chief Judge Carlson's recommendation that the Defendant's Motion to Dismiss Plaintiff's claim for punitive damages (ECF No. 4) should be denied at this juncture, the Court will not rehash the sound reasoning of the Magistrate Judge and will adopt the report and recommendation in its entirety.
NOW, THEREFORE, IT IS ORDERED THAT:
1. United States Chief Magistrate Judge Martin C. Carlson's December 16, 2013 Report and Recommendation (ECF No. 16) is ADOPTED in full.
2. The Defendants Motion to Dismiss (ECF No. 4) is DENIED.
