The court ORDERS that Ms. Nimmo is dismissed without prejudice. The case must remain open, as Mr. Nimmo remains as a plaintiff. The court further ORDERS that the motions at ECF Numbers 13 and 15 are DENIED as moot in light of the dismissal of Ms. Nimmo.

The court DIRECTS the Clerk to send a copy of this order to counsel of record and plaintiff at her las known address.
