IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
Civil Action No. 15-cv-00919-PAB-NYW
SAFECO INSURANCE COMPANY OF AMERICA,
Entered by Judge Philip A. Brimmer
This matter is before the Court on the parties’ Joint Stipulation f or Dismissal With
Prejudice [Docket No. 25]. The parties request that the Court enter an order dismissing
this action with prejudice.
The stipulation complies with Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(a)(1)(A)(ii),
which provides that the “plaintiff may dismiss an action without a court order by filing:
. . . a stipulation of dismissal signed by all parties who have appeared.” (emphasis
added). Furthermore, “[u]nless the notice or stipulation states otherwise, the dismissal
is without prejudice.” Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(a)(1)(B) (emphasis added). Here, however, the
parties have agreed to the dismissal of this action with prejudice. Therefore, the case
was dismissed with prejudice as of the entry of the parties’ joint stipulation for dismissal
with prejudice. No order of dismissal is necessary.
