MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter comes before the Court on the notice of dismissal (Doc. 32) pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(a)(1)(A)(i) filed by plaintiff the Bank of New York Mellon f/k/a the Bank of New York, as Trustee for the Certificate Holders of CWABS, Inc., Asset-backed Certificates, Series 2006-7, of its claims against defendants Unknown Tenants, Unknown Owners and Non-Record Claimants. Rule 41(a)(1)(A)(i) allows a plaintiff to dismiss an action without a court order at any time before the opposing party serves an answer or a motion for summary judgment. The applicable defendants have not served an answer or motion for summary judgment in this case. Because the plaintiff has an absolute right to dismiss this case against those defendants at the present time, the Court finds that the claims against defendants Unknown Tenants, Unknown Owners and Non-Record Claimants are DISMISSED without prejudice.
