IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS

DEUTSCHE BANK NATIONAL TRUST COMPANY, AS TRUSTEE FOR ARGENT SECURITIES, INC., ASSET-BACKED PASS-THROUGH CERTIFICATES, SERIES 2003-W5, PLAINTIFF,
GARY BOYD, JACQUELINE J. BOYD, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, UNKNOWN OWNERS, AND NON-RECORD CLAIMANTS DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Honorable J. Phil Gilbert
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter comes before the Court on the status report (Doc. 21) filed by plaintiff Deutsche Bank National Trust Company as Trustee for Argent Securities, Inc., Asset-Backed Pass-Through Certificates, Series 2003-W5, which the Court construes as a motion to dismiss without prejudice 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 from all the parties. It appears that defendants Gary and Jacqueline Boyd have entered into a permanent loan modification pursuant to the Home Affordable Modification Program and that all outstanding matters in this foreclosure case have been resolved. Dismissal is therefore appropriate. Accordingly, the Court GRANTS the motion to dismiss (Doc. 21), DISMISSES this case without prejudice and DIRECTS the Clerk of Court to close this case. The telephone status conference currently set for November 18, 2011, is VACATED.
