Moore, Jr. v. Doe et al
ORDER DISMISSING CASE. Signed by Judge J. Phil Gilbert on 5/29/2019. (jdh)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
ANTHONY T. MOORE, JR.,
Case No. 3:18-cv-01047-JPG-RJD
JOHN DOE, et al.,
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
J. PHIL GILBERT, DISTRICT JUDGE
Plaintiff Anthony T. Moore has filed a motion to dismiss his own case. (ECF No. 30.) The
Court construes it under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(a)(2) because the defendants have
already filed an answer herein. That rule allows a plaintiff to dismiss his own case without
prejudice on terms that the Court considers proper. And here, because the defendants did not
respond to Moore’s motion and for good cause shown, the Court GRANTS Moore’s motion (ECF
No. 30) and DISMISSES this case WITHOUT PREJUDICE. The Court DIRECTS the Clerk
of Court to close this case.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
DATED: MAY 29, 2019
