The opinion of the court was delivered by: J. Phil Gilbert District Judge
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter comes before the Court on Plaintiffs' Notice of Voluntary Dismissal (Doc. 7), which seeks to dismiss all claims against Defendant 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, Defendant has yet to file either an answer or a motion for summary judgment. Accordingly, the Court acknowledges that this matter is at an end and DIRECTS the Clerk of Court to close the case file.
