Timothy J. Severson v. James A. Yates

December 10, 2010

TIMOTHY J. SEVERSON,
PLAINTIFF,
v.
JAMES A. YATES, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.



ORDER DIRECTING THE CLERK OF THE COURT TO CLOSE THIS CASE P U R S U A N T T O P L A I N T I F F 'S VOLUNTARY DISMISSAL

(Doc. 10)

Plaintiff is a state prisoner proceeding pro se in a civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On November 5, 2010, Plaintiff filed a motion for voluntary dismissal pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(a). At this stage in the proceedings, Plaintiff has the absolute right to dismiss his claims without prejudice. See Duke Energy Trading and Marketing, L.L.C. v. Davis, 267 F.3d 1042, 1049 (9th Cir. 2001). The filing of the notice of voluntary dismissal 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 ORDERED to close this case pursuant to Plaintiff's notice of voluntary dismissal filed November 5, 2010.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
