David J. Bradley, Clerk
CIVIL NO. 2:16-CV-195
BE IT REMEMBERED that on September 5, 2017, the Court considered the
Joint Stipulation of Dismissal with Prejudice (Dkt. No. 18) in the above-captioned
The Parties provide that Plaintiff Margarito Riojas (“Riojas”) “moves to
dismiss his claims with prejudice” and that Defendant Waste Facilities, Inc. (“Waste
Facilities”), who has answered, “agrees to and joins with the dismissal.” Id. at 1
(also stating that the dismissal “is with prejudice to re-filing”). The Parties also
state that the stipulation is entered pursuant to the provisions of Federal Rule of
Civil Procedure 41(a)(1)(A)(ii).

dismiss an action without a court order by filing . . . a stipulation of dismissal
signed by all parties who have appeared.” Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(a)(1)(A)(ii). “[A]
voluntary order of dismissal requested by both parties is effective upon filing and
does not require the approval of the court.” SmallBizPros, Inc. v. MacDonald, 618
F.3d 458, 461 (5th Cir. 2010) (quoting Ramming v. Natural Gas Pipeline Co. of Am.,
390 F.3d 366, 369 n.1 (5th Cir. 2004)).
