Murphy's motion to voluntarily dismiss all her claims, NQ 151, is denied.
FED. R. CIV. P. 41(a)(2). The Court has already granted a prior voluntary
dismissal of the case. NQ 39. And several factors counsel against another:
Defendant's ripe motion for summary judgment; no explanation on why a
second dismissal is needed; the potential prejudice to Defendants; and the
more than one-hundred and fifty filings to date. Paulucci v. City ofDuluth, 826
F.2d 780, 783 (8th Cir. 1987). It is time to decide this case on the merits. If
Murphy has any objection to the Proposed Findings and Recommendations,
NQ 150, it is due by 8 September 2014.
