JAMES RICHARD MYERS, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: J. Phil Gilbert District Judge
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter comes before the Court on Plaintiff Robert Eggmann's Motion to Voluntarily Dismiss (Doc. 146) Defendant Ray Holcomb pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(a)(2).
Rule 41(a)(2) provides that only the Court may dismiss an action after an adverse party has filed an answer or motion for summary judgment and in the absence of a stipulation of dismissal of an entire case from all the parties.
Being fully advised of the premises, especially the fact that Eggmann will continue to pursue his claims against the remaining Defendants and this Court's recent approval of the unopposed settlement between Eggmann and Holcomb, (see Doc. 145), the Court GRANTS the instant motion, thereby DISMISSING Holcomb with prejudice. The Court DIRECTS the Clerk of Court to terminate Holcomb as a defendant in this matter and further DIRECTS the Clerk of Court to enter judgment accordingly at the close of this case.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
