IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
LITTLE ROCK FAMILY
PLANNING SERVICES, et al.
Case No. 4:19-cv-00449 KGB
LESLIE RUTLEDGE, et al.
Before the Court is the parties’ joint status report (Dkt. No. 212). Given the United States
Supreme Court’s holding in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, 142 S. Ct. 2228,
2234 (2022), the Court, on September 6, 2022, ordered the parties to file a status update, separately
or jointly, informing the Court of the parties’ preferences regarding the future of this case (Dkt.
No. 212). The parties filed a joint status report on September 15, 2022, requesting that the Court
dismiss without prejudice this case in accordance with the plaintiffs’ motion for voluntary
dismissal, filed prior to the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals entering its Order, Judgment, and
Mandate in this case (Dkt. Nos. 206; 212).
For the foregoing reasons, the Court dismisses this case pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil
Procedure 41(a)(1)(A)(i) and denies as moot defendants’ motion to dismiss and plaintiffs’ motion
for extension of time to file motion for attorneys’ fees and costs (Dkt. Nos. 57; 187).
It is so ordered this 19th day of September, 2022.
Kristine G. Baker
