PRADYUMNA MUMMADY, M.D., Defendant. May 01, 2017 David J. Bradley, Clerk CIVIL NO. 2:16-CV-471 ORDER BE IT REMEMBERED that on May 1, 2017, the Court considered the Parties’ Stipulation of Dismissal (Dkt. No. 14) in the above-captioned cause. Plaintiff Elizabeth Velazquez (“Velazquez”) and Defendant Pradyumna Mummady (“Mummady”) stipulate that “all matters in controversy as to all parties to this cause have been compromised and settled, and as a result of said settlement all parties have agreed that this cause should be dismissed with prejudice.” Dkt. No. 14 at 1. Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41 states, in part, that “the plaintiff may dismiss an action without a court order by filing . . . a stipulation of dismissal signed by all parties who have appeared.” Fed.

The Stipulation of Dismissal is signed by counsel for Velazquez and counsel for Mummady. Dkt. No. 14 at 2.
