Case No.: 1:15-cv-01597 DAD JLT
ORDER CLOSING THE CASE
On July 27, 2017, the plaintiffs, the United States of America and Janssen Pharmaceuticals
Inc., fka Ortho-McNeil Pharmaceuticals Inc., jointly filed a request to dismiss the action. (Doc. 34)
The stipulation relies upon Rule 41 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure which permits the
plaintiff to dismiss an action without a court order “by filing . . . a stipulation of dismissal signed by
all parties who have appeared.” Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(a)(1)(A)(ii). Because all parties who have
appeared in the action signed the stipulation (Doc. 20), it “automatically terminate[d] the action.”
Wilson v. City of San Jose, 111 F.3d 688, 692 (9th Cir. 1997). Accordingly, the Clerk of Court is
DIRECTED to close this action.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
