MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter comes before the Court on the Notice of Dismissal (Doc. 9) pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(a)(1)(A)(i) filed by the plaintiffs. Rule 41(a)(1)(A)(i) allows dismissal of an action by a plaintiff without a court order at any time before service by an adverse party of an answer or of a motion for summary judgment, whichever first occurs. The defendants have not filed an answer or motion for summary judgment in this case. Because the plaintiffs have an absolute right to dismiss this case at the present time, the Court finds that this action is DISMISSED with prejudice and without costs and DIRECTS the Clerk of Court to enter judgment accordingly.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
