v.
CITY OF MADISON, ET AL., DEFENDANT.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: David R Herndon Chief Judge United States District Court

ORDER

HERNDON, Chief Judge

Before the Court is Defendant Madison Police Department's Motion to Dismiss (Doc. 23). Defendant argues that Plaintiff has failed to state a claim on which relief can be granted as the Madison Police Department is not a suitable entity under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 as Plaintiff has also brought claims against the City of Madison and the police department is not a separate entity apart from the city. Plaintiff has filed a response acknowledging that the Madison Police Department is not a proper entity, agreeing that the police department should be dismissed, and moving for the dismissal of the Madison Police Department (Doc. 23). Accordingly, the Court ACKNOWLEDGES Plaintiff's request to dismiss the Madison Police Department and DISMISSES with prejudice the claims against the Madison Police Department. The Court DENIES AS MOOT Defendant's motion to dismiss (Doc. 23).

IT IS SO ORDERED.

Signed this 21st day of April, 2010.
