MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
On June 7, 2006, Plaintiff commenced this action in state court seeking to foreclose on the premises located at 156-10 134th Street, Jamaica, New York. Defendants removed and this litigation thereafter proceeded in federal court. Plaintiff now seeks to voluntarily dismiss this action under Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(a)(2).
Plaintiff sets forth that, on November 30, 2009, "the subject loan of this action was paid off with short sale funds from the sale of the Premises." Flickinger Decl. ¶ 5. Thus, Plaintiff appears to argue, this action is now moot. Defendants have filed no opposition. And the Court sees no reason why Plaintiff's motion should not be granted.
Consequently, Plaintiff's motion is GRANTED. This action is DISMISSED AS MOOT. The Clerk of the Court is directed to mark it as CLOSED.
