Kelly v. Saginaw County
OPINION and ORDER Summarily Dismissing the 1 Complaint. Signed by District Judge Gerald E. Rosen. (SBur)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
ROGER LEE KELLY,
Civil Action No. 2:16-CV-13218
HONORABLE GERALD E. ROSEN
UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
OPINION AND ORDER SUMMARILY DISMISSING THE COMPLAINT
Before the Court is Plaintiff Roger Lee Kelly’s pro se civil complaint filed pursuant
to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Plaintiff is a prisoner incarcerated at the Ionia Maximum Correctional
Facility in Ionia, Michigan. Plaintiff has now filed a motion to withdraw his cause of action.
For the reasons stated below, the motion to withdraw is granted and the complaint is
DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE.
Fed.R.Civ.P. 41(a) provides that a plaintiff may dismiss an action without order of
court by filing a notice of dismissal before service by the adverse party of an answer or
motion for summary judgment. See also Doran v. McGinnis, 158 F.R.D. 383, 389 (E.D.
Mich. 1994). Plaintiff is entitled to a voluntary dismissal of his civil rights complaint, in light
of the fact that the defendant has not yet been served in this case, nor have they filed an
answer to the complaint or motions to dismiss or for summary judgment. Id.
Based upon the foregoing, the motion to withdraw the cause of action is GRANTED
and the complaint is DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE.
