A notice of voluntary dismissal under Rule 41 in United States District Court is the topic of this blog post.

A notice of voluntary dismissal under Rule 41 in United States District Court is used by a plaintiff to dismiss their case before a defendant has filed an answer or motion for summary judgment.

A notice of voluntary dismissal under Rule 41 in United States District Court is authorized by Rule 41 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure which states in pertinent part that,

“(a) Voluntary Dismissal.

(1) By the Plaintiff.

(A) Without a Court Order. Subject to Rules 23(e), 23.1(c), 23.2, and 66 and any applicable federal statute, the plaintiff may dismiss an action without a court order by filing:

(i) a notice of dismissal before the opposing party serves either an answer or a motion for summary judgment; or

(ii) a stipulation of dismissal signed by all parties who have appeared.

(B) Effect. Unless the notice or stipulation states otherwise, the dismissal is without prejudice. But if the plaintiff previously dismissed any federal- or state-court action based on or including the same claim, a notice of dismissal operates as an adjudication on the merits.”

Deadline to file notice of voluntary dismissal under Rule 41 in United States District Court.

Motion for voluntary dismissal under Rule 41 in United States District Court

A motion for voluntary dismissal under Rule 41 in United States District Court is the topic of this blog post.

A motion for voluntary dismissal under Rule 41 in United States District Court is authorized by Rule 41(a)(2) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. This motion must be filed after a defendant has filed an answer or a motion for summary judgment.

Rule 41(a)(2) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure states in pertinent part that “Except as provided in Rule 41(a)(1), an action may be dismissed at the plaintiff’s request only by court order, on terms that the court considers proper.”

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal has stated in a published decision that the purpose of Rule 41 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure is to allow a plaintiff to dismiss their case without prejudice as long as the defendant will not suffer any legal prejudice or otherwise be unfairly affected by the dismissal.

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has also stated in another published decision that a motion for voluntary dismissal under Rule 41 in United States District Court must be granted unless the defendant can show that they will suffer legal prejudice if the case is dismissed.  Legal prejudice is defined as prejudice to a legal interest, a legal claim, or a legal argument.

A plaintiff in a case where the defendant or defendants have already filed an answer or motion for summary judgment that wants to dismiss their case should consider filing a motion for voluntary dismissal under Rule 41.

Counsel’s authority to represent a party

The stakes couldn’t be higher.
