R. Civ. P. 41(a)(1)(A). “The plaintiff may dismiss some or all of the defendants, or some or 26 all of his claims, through a Rule 41(a)(1) notice,” and the dismissal “automatically terminates the 27 action as to the defendants who are the subjects of the notice.” Wilson v. City of San Jose, 111 23 28 1 F.3d 688, 692 (9th Cir. 1997). 2 Because Plaintiff filed a notice of dismissal of this case without prejudice under Rule 3 41(a)(1)(A)(i), this case has automatically terminated as to Defendant AIG Benefit Solutions. 4 Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(a)(1)(A)(i). Accordingly, the Clerk of the Court is directed to TERMINATE 5 Defendant AIG Benefit Solutions. This case shall remain OPEN pending resolution of the plaintiff’s case against the 6 7 remaining defendant. 8 9 10 IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: March 31, 2017 /s/ Sheila K.
