    Order of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida Adopting Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendations

    [1].

    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. [1] ("Petition"), and The Dominican Republic's ("Respondent") Cross-Motion to Confirm Arbitration Award in its Entirety, ECF No. [24] ("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. [30]. 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. [46]. 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.

    [2].

    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.

    [3].
    Accordingly, it is ORDERED and ADJUDGED as follows:

    1. The R&R, ECF No. [46], is ADOPTED.

    2. The Petition, ECF No. [1], is DENIED.

    3. The Cross-Motion, ECF No. [24], 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.
