This matter comes before the Court on Plaintiff Joyce Pierce's Notice of Voluntary Dismissal (Doc. 5) pursuant to settlement.
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 either an answer or a motion for summary judgment, whichever first occurs.
Here, Defendant Security Check, LLC has yet to file an answer or a motion for summary judgment. As such, the Court acknowledges that the case is at an end and DIRECTS the Clerk of Court to close the file accordingly.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
