IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
CASE NO. 2:15-CV-710-WKW
Before the court is Petitioner Cedriquez McCaa’s pro se motion to withdraw
his motion to vacate, set aside, or correct sentence under 28 U.S.C. § 2255. (Doc.
# 12.) The court construes this motion as McCaa’s notice of voluntary dismissal
under Rule 41(a)(1) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
Rule 41(a)(1)(A)(i) provides that a plaintiff may voluntarily dismiss an
action without a court order by filing “a notice of dismissal before the opposing
party serves either an answer or a motion for summary judgment[.]” Fed. R. Civ.
P. 41(a)(1)(A)(i). Although the United States has been directed to file a response
to McCaa’s § 2255 motion, such response is not due until December 14, 2015, and
has not yet been served by the government. (See Doc. # 11.)
Accordingly, it is ORDERED that this action is DISMISSED without
prejudice under Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(a)(1). The Clerk of Court is DIRECTED to
close this case.
DONE, this 8th day of December, 2015.
/s/ W. Keith Watkins
