MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
J. PHIL GILBERT, District Judge.
On November 19, 2013, Plaintiff Richard Pinkerton, an inmate in Menard Correctional Center, filed this action for deprivations of his constitutional rights pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. While the preliminary review of the complaint was being conducted pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915A, Plaintiff filed a "motion" to voluntarily dismiss the action, pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(a)(1)(A)(i), with prejudice (Doc. 7).
Pursuant to Rule 41(a)(1)(A)(i), no motion is necessary. Rather, upon filing "notice" of voluntary dismissal, the case is terminated automatically, without Court order. In any event, Pursuant to Rule 41(a)(1)(B), dismissal is with prejudice as requested by Plaintiff. The Clerk of Court is DIRECTED to close this case and enter judgment accordingly.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
