UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI
MELLVE SHAHID, et al.,
US BANCORP, et al.,
Case No. 4:12CV900 CDP
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter is before me on the City of Florissant’s motion to reconsider yesterday’s
Order granting plaintiffs’ motion to dismiss without prejudice. Whether to grant a dismissal
under Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(a)(2) is, as defendant acknowledges, within my sound discretion. Here,
defendant argues that I should amend the dismissal to be with prejudice because they have a
pending motion to dismiss and have “expended significant effort” in this case. However,
defendant has failed to specify what efforts they have undertaken in defense of this case other
than filing a barebones motion to dismiss. Given the age of this case and the stage of the
proceedings, I continue to believe that a dismissal without prejudice is proper and within the
interests of justice.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that defendant’s motion for reconsideration [#45] is
