MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
On July 17, 2009, Schneider National Carriers filed a motion to dismiss its remaining claims against Big Dog Enterprises Logistics, LLC (Doc. 399). Schneider also seeks to amend its counterclaim to limit the damages sought against Peerless Premier Appliance Co. FEDERAL RULE OF CIVIL PROCEDURE 41(a)(2) provides that where the defendant has answered the complaint or filed a motion for summary judgment, "an action may be dismissed at the plaintiff's request only by court order, on terms that the court considers proper."
Having fully considered Schneider's filing, the Court hereby GRANTS the motion to dismiss (Doc. 399) and DISMISSES Schneider's claims against Big Dog without prejudice. However, the Court DENIES the motion to amend Schneider's counterclaim, as it appears to be unnecessary given that the parties have reached a settlement as to damages.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
MICHAEL J. REAGAN United States District Judge
