PageID 210 (Doc. 52 at 1–2) Ferguson objects (Doc. 55) to the report and recommendation. A de novo review of the report and recommendation reveals that Ferguson's objections are unfounded, unpersuasive, or anticipated by the magistrate judge. The objections require no different resolution. Accordingly, Ferguson's objections (Doc. 55) are OVERRULED, and the report and recommendation (Doc. 52) is ADOPTED IN PART.* A separate case management and scheduling order will set deadlines. ORDERED in Tampa, Florida, on July 20, 2017. * No later than AUGUST 4, 2017, the parties must exchange initial disclosures. Also, a separate mediation order, not the case management and scheduling order, will direct the parties to mediate. -2-
