Page 1 of 2 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA PENSACOLA DIVISION WILLIAM ESTRADA, Plaintiff, vs. SANTA ROSA CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTION, Defendant. _____________________________/ REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION This matter is before the court on Plaintiff's notice of voluntary dismissal of the instant civil rights case, filed pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 1983, without prejudice (Doc. 10). Rule 41(a)(1)(A)(i) provides that an action may be dismissed without an order of the court by filing a notice of dismissal at any time before the adverse party serves an answer or files a motion for summary judgment. Because Defendant has not yet been served in the instant case, it is clear that Plaintiff is automatically entitled to a voluntary dismissal at this time. Accordingly, it is respectfully RECOMMENDED: That Plaintiff's notice of voluntary dismissal (Doc. 10) be GRANTED and this case be DISMISSED without prejudice. Case No.: 3:08cv467/MCR/EMT Page 2 of 2 At Pensacola, Florida, this 5th day of November 2008. /s/ Elizabeth M. Timothy ELIZABETH M.
