UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
April 22, 2013
TIG INSURANCE COMPANY,
THE DIOCESE OF BELLEVILLE, ILLINOIS, RAYMOND KOWNACKI, JOHN DOE S. AND JOHN DOE S.W., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: J. Phil Gilbert District Judge
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter comes before the Court on the Notice of Voluntary Dismissal (Doc. 13) pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(a)(1)(A)(i) filed by plaintiff TIG Insurance Company. 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 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 at the present time, the Court finds that this action is DISMISSED without prejudice and DIRECTS the Clerk of Court to close this case.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
J. Phil Gilbert
