2. Plaintiffs reviewed Defendants' motions and submissions in support thereof and stipulate that Plaintiffs lack standing to assert any of the claims contained in Plaintiffs' Complaint and, as a result, that the Court lacks subject-matter jurisdiction over the above-entitled action.

4. The Parties further stipulate the order will provide that each of the respective Parties will bear their own costs and attorneys' fees incurred in this action.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED, ADJUDGED AND DECREED, in accordance with the foregoing stipulations of the Parties, that this action is dismissed, without prejudice, because this Court lacks subject-matter jurisdiction due to Plaintiffs' lack of standing. Each party shall bear their own costs and attorneys' fees in connection with this action.
