UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
December 16, 2010
WELCH SYSTEMS, INC., PLAINTIFF,
JAMES TUCKER, INDIVIDUALLY AND DOING BUSINESS AS NATIONWIDE PROCESSING, AND RUSTY BAKER, INDIVIDUALLY AND DOING BUSINESS AS NATIONWIDE PROCESSING, 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 Welch Systems, Inc.'s ("Welch") Notice of Voluntary Dismissal (Doc. 27), which seeks to dismiss all claims against Defendants without prejudice.
Pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(a)(1)(A)(i), a plaintiff has an absolute right to dismiss an action against an adverse party at any time before said party serves either an answer or a motion for summary judgment, whichever first occurs.
Here, Defendants have yet to file either an answer or a motion for summary judgment. Accordingly, the Court acknowledges that this matter is at an end, thereby DENYING as moot Defendants' Motion to Dismiss or Transfer for Improper Venue (Doc. 6). The Court DIRECTS the Clerk of Court to close the case file.
