VOLUNTARY DISMISSAL OF ACTION (ECF No. 12)
CLERK SHALL CLOSE CASE
Plaintiff Thomas S. Owen ("Plaintiff") is a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis in a civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Plaintiff has consented to Magistrate Judge jurisdiction. (ECF No. 5.)

Under Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(a)(1)(A), a plaintiff may dismiss an action without a court order by filing a notice of dismissal. Plaintiff's Answer and Motion requesting dismissal of his Complaint is read as a notice of dismissal.
Accordingly, pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 41, this action is hereby DISMISSED without prejudice.
The Clerk shall CLOSE this case.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
