Cunningham v. Honeywell International, Inc.
Order mooting 166 Joint Stipulation of Dismissal as to Plaintiff's Original Complaint by Oglebay Norton Company. Signed by Judge Kristi K. DuBose on 4/14/2011. (sdb)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
WILLIAM M. CUNNINGHAM, JR.,
PERSONAL REPRESENTATIVE AND
EXECUTOR OF THE ESTATE OF
REBECCA C. CUNNINGHAM, DECEASED,
HONEYWELL INTERNATIONAL, INC.,
)CIVIL ACTION NO. 1:10-00671-KD-C
This matter is before the Court on the “Joint Stipulation for Dismissal” (Doc. 166) filed
by the Plaintiff and the defendant identified as Oglebay Norton Company, whose true and proper
name is Ferro Engineering Division of ON Marine Services Company (“Oglebay Norton”). The
parties stipulate that claims asserted against Oglebay Norton in Plaintiff’s original Complaint
(Doc. 1) are to be dismissed without prejudice. The Court construes this stipulation as one filed
pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(a)(1)(A)(ii).
On April 5, 2011, the Plaintiff filed an Amended Complaint (Doc. 92), in which Oglebay
Norton was not included as a defendant. “An amended pleading supersedes the former pleading;
the original pleading is abandoned by the amendment, and is no longer a part of the pleader's
averments against his adversary.” Dresdner Bank AG v. M/V Olympia Voyager, 463 F.3d 1210,
1215 (11th Cir. 2006) (internal quotation marks omitted). Thus, there are no claims pending in
this case against Oglebay Norton.
Accordingly, it is ORDERED that Plaintiff’s and Oglebay Norton’s “Joint Stipulation for
Dismissal” (Doc. 166) is MOOT.
DONE and ORDERED this the 14th day of April 2011.
