Case No.: 3:07cv538/RV/EMT GOLDRUSH77.COM, Defendant. _________________________________/ REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION This cause is before the court upon Plaintiff's Notice of Voluntary Dismissal of the instant action against the only remaining Defendant, GoldRush77.com (Doc. 26). Rule 41(a)(1)(i) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure provides that an action may be dismissed without an order of the court by filing a notice of dismissal before the opposing party serves either an answer or a motion for summary judgment. Unless otherwise stated, the dismissal is without prejudice. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(a)(1). In the instant case, Plaintiff filed a notice of voluntary dismissal under Rule 41(a)(1)(i) before Defendant served either an answer or a motion for summary judgment; therefore, it is clear that Plaintiff is automatically entitled to dismissal of this action. Accordingly, it is respectfully RECOMMENDED: That this case be DISMISSED without prejudice. At Pensacola, Florida this 17th day of March 2009. /s/ Elizabeth M. Timothy ELIZABETH M.
