United States District Court, E.D. Louisiana
May 14, 2015
JANE KAPLAN, SECTION: R(3)
SARAH S. VANCE, District Judge.
Before the Court is plaintiff Scott Kaplan's complaint against his ex-wife Jane Kaplan seeking money allegedly owed to him under the parties' Illinois state-court divorce decree. On January 30, 2015, the Magistrate Judge ordered plaintiff to show cause by March 2, 2015 why the case should not be dismissed for lack of subjectmatter jurisdiction and improper venue. Plaintiff failed to respond to the Magistrate Judge's show cause order, and the Magistrate Judge authored a Report and Recommendation ("R&R") recommending that the Court dismiss plaintiff's action for lack of subject-matter jurisdiction and improper venue. Plaintiff has not filed an objection to the Magistrate Judge's R&R.
The Court has reviewed the plaintiff's complaint, the applicable law, and the Magistrate Judge's unopposed R&R, and hereby approves the R&R and adopts it as its opinion.
Accordingly, plaintiff Scott Kaplan's complaint is hereby dismissed without prejudice for lack of subject-matter jurisdiction and improper venue.
