1 2 3 4 5 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 6 NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 7 8 NATIONAL UNION FIRE INSURANCE COMPANY OF PITTSBURGH, PA., No. C-11-1892 EMC 9 Plaintiff, ORDER RE STIPULATED NOTICE OF DISMISSAL WITH PREJUDICE v. 11 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 10 (Docket No. 84) PAYLESS SHOESOURCE, INC., et al., 12 13 Defendants. ___________________________________/ 14 15 16 Plaintiff National Union Fire Insurance Company of Pittsburgh, PA. ("National Union"), and 17 Defendants Payless Shoesource, Inc., et al. (collectively "Payless"), have stipulated to dismiss the 18 above-captioned matter with prejudice. See Docket No. 84. Prior to their filing of the instant 19 stipulation, the Court ordered Plaintiff to show cause as to why this case should not be 20 dismissed following the resolution of a similar suit in the U.S. District Court for the District of 21 Kansas. See Collective Brands, Inc. et. al. v. National Union Fire Insurance Company of 22 Pittsburgh, PA. et. al., No. 5:11-cv-04097-JTM-KGG, Docket No. 82 (Judgment). Plaintiff filed a 23 timely response to the order to show cause, see Response to Order to Show Cause (Docket No. 82), 24 and the Court is satisfied by the explanation provided therein and vacates the order to show cause 25 (terminating Docket No. 81). 26 Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(a)(1)(A) permits a plaintiff to voluntarily dismiss an action without a court 27 order by filing "a stipulation of dismissal signed by all parties who have appeared." National 28 Union's Joint Notice of Stipulation of Dismissal with Prejudice (Docket No. 84) meets the 1 requirements of this rule. Therefore, this action is DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE. 2 Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss, Stay, or Transfer (Docket No. 51) and Plaintiff's Motion for 3 Summary Judgment (Docket No. 70) are DENIED as moot. The Clerk is directed to close the file in 4 this matter. 5 This order disposes of Docket Nos. 51, 70, and 81. 6 7 IT IS SO ORDERED. 8 9 Dated: March 15, 2013 _________________________ EDWARD M. CHEN United States District Judge 11 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 10 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
