notice of dismissal before the opposing party serves either an answer or a motion for
summary judgment, or by filing a stipulation of dismissal signed by all parties who
have appeared. Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(a)(1). In addition, a court may grant a request for
voluntary dismissal “on terms that the court considers proper.” Fed. R. Civ. P.
Plaintiff filed his Motion for Voluntary Dismissal on March 27, 2013. (Filing
