Sutton v. Michigan, State of
ORDER Acknowledging 5 Notice of Voluntary Dismissal and Closing Case. Signed by District Judge Thomas L. Ludington. (SGam)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
ROBIN DENISE SUTTON,
Case No. 14-11164
Honorable Thomas L. Ludington
STATE OF MICHIGAN,
ORDER ACKNOWLEDGING PLAINTIFF’S NOTICE OF
VOLUNTARY DISMISSAL AND CLOSING CASE
Plaintiff Robin Denise Sutton is a state prisoner at Women’s Huron Valley Correctional
Facility in Ypsilanti, Michigan. On March 19, 2014, Plaintiff filed a pro se civil rights complaint
against the State of Michigan and an application to proceed without prepayment of the fees and
costs for her complaint. The complaint alleged that, while Plaintiff was confined at Camp
Brighton in Pinckney, Michigan, she was required to use contaminated water for drinking and
Plaintiff claimed that this condition of confinement was cruel and unusual
punishment. She sought money damages for pain and suffering and a court ruling that she would
be entitled to compensation for medical expenses if she became sick or was diagnosed with an
illness that resulted from the use of contaminated water.
On March 21, 2014, the Court granted Plaintiff’s application to proceed without
prepayment of the fees and costs for this action, and on March 27, 2014, Plaintiff filed a notice
of voluntary dismissal. Because the State of Michigan was not served with the complaint and
has not filed an answer or a motion for summary judgment, Plaintiff was entitled to dismiss her
complaint without a court order, and the dismissal is without prejudice. Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(a)(1).
Accordingly, it is ORDERED that this case is hereby CLOSED.
