IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
May 7, 2010
CHRISTOPHER M. CRAIG, PLAINTIFF,
JUSTIN FLANERY, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Kendall J. Newman United States Magistrate Judge
Presently before the undersigned is plaintiff's request for dismissal of this action with prejudice.*fn1 (Dkt. No. 50.) Because defendant has already filed an answer to plaintiff's amended complaint (Dkt. No. 33), a court order is required to effectuate a voluntary dismissal. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(a)(2). The undersigned finds that voluntary dismissal of this case with prejudice is appropriate.
The court HEREBY ORDERS that:
1. Plaintiff's request for dismissal with prejudice is granted;
2. This case is dismissed with prejudice and all pending dates are vacated; and
3. The Clerk of Court is directed to close this case.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
