VONNIE HOFER, INDEPENDENT ADMINISTRATOR OF THE ESTATE OF ARTHUR HOFER, DECEASED, PLAINTIFF,
WROPHAS MEEKS, M.D., LOGAN PARK IMAGING, LLC, SI RADIOLOGY ASSOCIATES, LLC, AND CHIRAG DAVE, M.D., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: J. Phil Gilbert District Judge
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter comes before the Court on the Motion to Voluntarily Dismiss (Doc. 3), which the Court construes as a notice of dismissal pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(a)(1)(A)(i) filed by plaintiff Vonnie Hofer. Rule 41(a)(1)(A)(i) allows a plaintiff to dismiss an action without a court order at any time before the opposing party serves an answer or a motion for summary judgment. The defendant has not served an answer or motion for summary judgment in this case. Because the plaintiff has an absolute right to dismiss this case at the present time, the Court finds that this action is DISMISSED without prejudice and DIRECTS the Clerk of Court to enter judgment accordingly.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
