IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
SAFEWAY INSURANCE COMPANY
OF ALABAMA, INC.,
UNITED STATES POSTAL
SERVICE, and ANGELA RILEY,
CIVIL ACTION 17-0388-CG-MU
This cause is before the Court on the Plaintiff’s Motion to Dismiss (Doc. 9), in
which the Plaintiff requests that this action be dismissed without prejudice with
leave to reinstate the case in the event Plaintiff’s SF95 claim pending before the
United States Postal Service is denied.
Because a voluntary dismissal of a federal tort claim may in fact be a decision
on the merits if requested by the Plaintiff, the Court will construe the Plaintiff’s
motion to be a request to stay case.
Upon due consideration, the motion to stay is GRANTED. Accordingly, all
proceedings in this matter are STAYED. The Clerk of Court is directed to place
this case on the Court’s administrative docket; however, the Court retains
jurisdiction. The Plaintiff is ORDERED to notify the Court within thirty (30) days
of action by the Postal Service on its SF95 claim.
DONE and ORDERED this the 19th day of October, 2017.
/s/ Callie V. S. Granade
SENIOR UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
