United States District Court, N.D. Indiana
March 5, 2014
MINNESOTA LIFE INSURANCE CO., Plaintiff,
HOWARD C. KINGKADE, et al., Defendants.
OPINION AND ORDER
WILLIAM C. LEE, District Judge.
On January 27, 2014, this court entered an order directing the plaintiff, Minnesota Life Insurance Co. ("Minnesota Life") to file an accounting of fees and costs. On January 31, 2014, Minnesota Life filed its "Statement of Fees and Costs". The defendant, Howard Kingkade ("Kingkade") filed a response on February 13, 2014, objecting to the award of any fees and costs to Minnesota Life.
On February 25, 2014, this court entered an order awarding Minnesota Life its request for fees and costs and directing the remaining balance of the funds with the Clerk of Court. On February 28, 2014, Minnesota Life deposited the balance of the funds with the Clerk of Court. Therefore, as Minnesota Life is no longer an interested party in this action, the court will grant their requested dismissal [DE 14].
On the basis of the foregoing, Minnesota Life's motion to dismiss [DE 14] is hereby GRANTED.
