MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
REAGAN, District Judge
On January 25, 2008, counterclaim/interpleader Plaintiff Peerless-Premier Appliance Co. and cross-claim/interpleader Defendant Werner Enterprises filed a stipulation that Peerless-Premier's cause of action against Werner be dismissed with prejudice (Doc. 188).
FEDERAL RULE OF CIVIL PROCEDURE 41(a)(1)(i) provides that a plaintiff may voluntarily dismiss an action "by filing a stipulation of dismissal signed by all parties who have appeared in the action." However, because the stipulation was only signed by John Baroni, counsel for Peerless-Premier, and Steven Hughes, counsel for Werner, the Court set a deadline for other parties to object to the voluntary dismissal (Doc. 190).
As the deadline to file objections has passed, and no party has filed a response to the stipulation for dismissal, the Court hereby DISMISSES with prejudice Peerless-Premier's cause of action against Werner Enterprises, the parties to bear their respective costs.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
