THIS CAUSE is before the Court upon Dominicana Renovables, S.L.'s ("Petitioner") Petition to Confirm in Part and Set Aside in Part Arbitral Award, ECF No.  ("Petition"), and The Dominican Republic's ("Respondent") Cross-Motion to Confirm Arbitration Award in its Entirety, ECF No.  ("Cross-Motion"). The Petition and Cross-Motion were previously referred to the Honorable Magistrate Judge Alicia M. Otazo-Reyes for a Report and Recommendations ("R&R"). See ECF No. . On February 12, 2022, Judge Otazo-Reyes issued a R&R recommending that the Petition be denied, the Cross-Motion be granted, and the Court confirm the Arbitration Award in its entirety. ECF No. . The R&R states that the parties shall file any objections within fourteen days of the date of service of a copy of the R&R. Id. at 11. To date, neither party has filed objections, nor have they sought additional time in which to do so.
Nevertheless, the Court has conducted a de novo review of Judge Otazo-Reyes's R&R and the record in this case and is otherwise fully advised in the premises. See Williams v. McNeil, 557 F.3d 1287, 1291 (11th Cir. 2009) (citing 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)). Upon review, the Court finds the R&R to be well reasoned and correct. The Court therefore agrees with the analysis in Judge Otazo- Reyes's R&R and concludes that the Petition should be denied, the Cross-Motion should be granted, and the Arbitration Award should be confirmed in its entirety for the reasons set forth therein.
1. The R&R, ECF No. , is ADOPTED.
2. The Petition, ECF No. , is DENIED.
3. The Cross-Motion, ECF No. , is GRANTED.
4. The Arbitration Award, ECF No. [16-1], is CONFIRMED in its entirety.
5. The Clerk shall CLOSE this case.
DONE AND ORDERED in Chambers at Miami, Florida, on March 1, 2022.
