IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA SOUTHERN DIVISION
April 14, 2011
WILLIAM M. CUNNINGHAM, JR., PERSONAL REPRESENTATIVE AND EXECUTOR OF THE ESTATE OF REBECCA C. CUNNINGHAM, DECEASED, PLAINTIFF,
HONEYWELL INTERNATIONAL, INC., ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Kristi K. DuBOSE United States District Judge
This matter is before the Court on the "Joint Stipulation for Dismissal" (Doc. 166) filed by the Plaintiff and the defendant identified as Oglebay Norton Company, whose true and proper name is Ferro Engineering Division of ON Marine Services Company ("Oglebay Norton"). The parties stipulate that claims asserted against Oglebay Norton in Plaintiff's original Complaint (Doc. 1) are to be dismissed without prejudice. The Court construes this stipulation as one filed pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(a)(1)(A)(ii).
On April 5, 2011, the Plaintiff filed an Amended Complaint (Doc. 92), in which Oglebay Norton was not included as a defendant. "An amended pleading supersedes the former pleading; the original pleading is abandoned by the amendment, and is no longer a part of the pleader's averments against his adversary." Dresdner Bank AG v. M/V Olympia Voyager, 463 F.3d 1210, 1215 (11th Cir. 2006) (internal quotation marks omitted). Thus, there are no claims pending in this case against Oglebay Norton.
Accordingly, it is ORDERED that Plaintiff's and Oglebay Norton's "Joint Stipulation for Dismissal" (Doc. 166) is MOOT.
