The Sixth Circuit today reversed a district court’s granting of post-answer, voluntary dismissals under Rule 41(a)(2) without prejudice.  The defendants wanted the dismissals with prejudice plus attorneys’ fees.  The court of appeals held that the district court erred in failing to explain why it declined to attach conditions to the dismissals.  Bridgeport Music, Inc. v. Universal-MCA Music Publishing, Inc., No. 05-5719 (6th Cir. Mar. 30, 2007).
