IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
September 13, 2010
KATHY BRADLEY, RELATOR,
L'OREAL USA, INC., DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge
Before the Court is Relator's Notice of Voluntary Dismissal Pursuant to FEDERAL RULE OF CIVIL PROCEDURE 41(a)(1)(A)(i) (Doc. 31). Plaintiff has opted to voluntarily dismiss her suit without prejudice against Defendant for the reason that it appears other similar claims have already been brought against Defendant pursuant to 35 U.S.C. § 292, filed prior to this suit. The Parties have agreed that this dismissal shall also require each Party to pay its own costs.
The Court first, sua sponte, LIFTS the stay that was imposed by its August 30, 2010 Order (Doc. 30), so that it may ACKNOWLEDGE Plaintiff's Notice of Voluntary Dismissal (Doc. 31). As such, this matter is hereby DISMISSED
WITHOUT PREJUDICE, each Party to bear its own costs. The Clerk is instructed to close the case.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
