UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
May 17, 2010
MARCO HUDSON, PETITIONER,
JAMES A. YATES, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Anthony W. Ishii Chief United States District Judge
ORDER DISMISSING PETITION FOR WRIT OF HABEAS CORPUS WITHOUT PREJUDICE [Doc. 12]
Petitioner is a state prisoner proceeding pro se with a petition for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254.
On May 3, 2010, Petitioner Marco Hudson filed a notice of voluntary dismissal pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(a)(1)(i). At this stage in the proceedings, Petitioner has the absolute right to dismiss his claims, without prejudice. Duke Energy Trading and Marketing, L.L.C. v. Davis, 267 F.3d 1042, 1049 (9th Cir. 2001). The filing of the notice itself has the effect of closing the action, and the Court no longer has jurisdiction over the claims. Id.
Accordingly, the Clerk of the Court is HEREBY DIRECTED to close this file pursuant to Petitioner's notice of voluntary dismissal filed on May 3, 2010.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
