SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
WESTERN DIVISION AT DAYTON
TIFFANY N. OGLE,
Case No. 3:17-cv-127
KOORSEN FIRE & SECURITY, INC, et al.,
District Judge Walter H. Rice
Magistrate Judge Michael J. Newman
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION1 THAT: (1) PLAINTIFF’S MOTION FOR
VOLUNTARY DISMISSAL OF ALL CLAIMS AGAINST DEFENDANT TYCO FIRE

(DOC. 47), BE GRANTED; (2) ALL CLAIMS AGAINST DEFENDANT TFP BE
DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE; AND (3) TFP’S MOTION FOR JUDGMENT ON
THE PLEADINGS (DOC. 45) BE DENIED AS MOOT
This civil case is before the Court on the motion for judgment on the pleadings filed by
Defendant Tyco Fire Products, LP (“TFP”). Doc. 45. Plaintiff did not file a memorandum in
opposition to TFP’s motion and, instead, moved to voluntarily dismiss all claims against TFP
without prejudice. Doc. 46. TFP does not oppose Plaintiff’s motion for voluntary dismissal and,
instead, now moves the Court to grant Plaintiff’s motion and to, therefore, dismiss all claims
against it without prejudice. Doc. 47.
Based on the foregoing, the undersigned RECOMMENDS that: (1) Plaintiff’s
unopposed motion to voluntarily dismiss all claims against TFP (doc. 46), as well as TFP’s
motion in that regard (doc. 47), be GRANTED; (2) all claims against TFP be DISMISSED
Attached hereto is a NOTICE to the parties regarding objections to this Report and
WITHOUT PREJUDICE pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 212; and (3) TFP’s motion for judgment
on the pleadings (doc. 45) be DENIED AS MOOT. This recommendation does not dispose of
the case in its entirety and Plaintiff’s claims against other Defendants remain pending.
