IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT

FORT SMITH DIVISION
NORTHPORT HEALTH SERVICES OF

AND REHABILITATION; NORTHPORT
HEALTH SERVICES, INC.; and NHS
Case No. 2:10-CV-02013
SANDRA O’BRIEN, as Special Administrator
of the Estate of Robert Warren, Deceased
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
Before the Court is Plaintiffs’ Notice of Voluntary Dismissal. (Doc. 39). Plaintiffs request
dismissal of their case, pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41. Plaintiffs represent that the
this matter has been settled. While the Notice requests dismissal without prejudice, the proper
resolution, based on the fact that the parties have entered into a settlement agreement, is dismissal
It appearing to the Court that the matter has been settled, the Court finds that the instant
matter should be dismissed with prejudice, subject to the terms of the settlement agreement.
If any party desires to make the terms of the settlement a part of the record herein, those
terms should be reduced to writing and filed with the Court within thirty days from the file date of
this Order. The Court retains jurisdiction to vacate this Order and to reopen the action upon cause
shown that settlement has not been completed and that a party wishes this Court to enforce the
settlement agreement specifically.
Because a court order is required for dismissal of this case pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(a),
the Court treats Plaintiffs’ Notice as a Motion to Dismiss. That Motion (Doc. 39) is GRANTED
and Plaintiffs’ claims are dismissed with prejudice in accordance with Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(a)(2).
IT IS SO ORDERED this 20th day of September, 2012.
