MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter comes before the Court on Plaintiff Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation's ("FDIC") Notice of Voluntary Dismissal (Doc. 43).
Pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(a)(1)(A)(i), a plaintiff has an absolute right to dismiss an action without a court order at any time before an adverse party serves an answer or a motion for summary judgment, whichever first occurs.
Here, Defendants have yet to file an answer or motion for summary judgment. As such, the Court acknowledges that FDIC's role in this case is at an end and DIRECTS the Clerk of Court to terminate FDIC's status as plaintiff.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
