United States District Court, D. Oregon
April 29, 2015
REGIONAL LOCAL UNION NOS. 846 and 847, et al, Plaintiffs,
JAYCO STEEL SERVICES, INC., a Texas corporation, Defendant.
MARCO A. HERNNDEZ, District Judge.
Magistrate Judge Stewart issued a Findings & Recommendation  on February 10, 2015, recommending that Defendant Jayco Steel Services, Inc.'s Motion to Dismiss for Lack of Personal Jurisdiction be denied, but its alternative Motion to Transfer Venue  to the Southern District of Texas be granted. Plaintiffs Regional Local Union Nos. 846 and 847 of the International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental, and Reinforcing Iron Workers, and the AFL-CIO (collectively "Plaintiffs") timely filed objections to the Findings and Recommendation. The matter is now before me pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) and Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 72(b).
When any party objects to any portion of the Magistrate Judge's Findings & Recommendation, the district court must make a de novo determination of that portion of the Magistrate Judge's report. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); Dawson v. Marshall, 561 F.3d 930, 932 (9th Cir. 2009); United States v. Reyna-Tapia, 328 F.3d 1114, 1121 (9th Cir. 2003) (en banc).
I have carefully considered Plaintiffs' objections and conclude there is no basis to modify the Findings & Recommendation. I have also reviewed the pertinent portions of the record de novo and find no other errors in the Magistrate Judge's Findings & Recommendation.
The Court ADOPTS Magistrate Judge Stewart's Findings & Recommendation , and therefore, Defendant's Motion to Dismiss for Lack of Personal Jurisdiction is denied, but its alternative Motion to Transfer Venue  is granted. This case is transferred to the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
