(ECF No. 232)
On September 3, 2021, the parties filed a stipulated notice of dismissal pursuant to
19 Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(a) of Defendants Tom Cavallero, Jason Goins, Clifford Tilly,
20 Taylor Fithian, Heather Goode, Sean Ryan, Deborah Mandujano, Amanda Gibson, and Corina
21 Denning. (ECF No. 232.) The dismissal of these Defendants is with prejudice and with each
22 party to bear their own costs and fees. (Id.) The claims against the other named Defendants are
23 not subject to the stipulation and will remain active. (Id.)
Rule 41(a) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure allows a party to dismiss some or all
25 of the defendants in an action through a Rule 41(a) notice. Wilson v. City of San Jose, 111 F.3d
26 688, 692 (9th Cir. 1997); see also Concha v. London, 62 F.3d 1493, 1506 (9th Cir. 1995) (“The

2 (9th Cir. 2005) (The Ninth Circuit has “only extended the rule to allow the dismissal of all claims
3 against one defendant, so that a defendant may be dismissed from the entire action.”). “Filing a
4 notice of voluntary dismissal with the court automatically terminates the action as to the
5 defendants who are the subjects of the notice.” Concha, 62 F.3d at 1506.
Accordingly, the Clerk of the Court is DIRECTED to terminate Defendants Tom
7 Cavallero, Jason Goins, Clifford Tilly, Taylor Fithian, Heather Goode, Sean Ryan, Deborah
8 Mandujano, Amanda Gibson, and Corina Denning as defendants in this action.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
