After plaintiff voluntarily dismissed adversary proceeding against defendant law firm that had formerly represented him, defendant moved under Federal Rule 41 to stay future action absent payment of duplicate fees and costs. Held, motion was not ripe because plaintiff had not yet filed a second action, and Court did not have authority to impose a stay until he did so.
