R. Civ. P. 15(a)(2) submit the following stipulation to amend complaint for the Court's approval. Plaintiffs filed their original complaint in this mater on January 7, 2009. On January 9, 2009, pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 15(a), Plaintiffs filed their First Amended Complaint, adding Plaintiff John Doe #1, an individual, and as a representative of the proposed Class of Major Donors. On January 22, 2009, pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 15(a)(2), the Court granted Plaintiffs' request to file a Second Amended Complaint, replacing Defendant Eileen Teichert with Defendant Dennis J. Herrera. Plaintiffs filed a Rule 20 Motion to Add Plaintiff National Organization for Marriage California PAC ("NOM-California PAC") concurrently with this stipulation. NOM-California PAC formed on February 6, 2009, as a "general purpose committee." Cal. Gov't Code 82027.5. As set forth in Plaintiffs' Rule 20 Motion to Add Plaintiff National Organization for Marriage California PAC, there are common questions of law and fact making joinder of NOMCalifornia PAC appropriate in this action. If the Court grants Plaintiffs' Rule 20 Motion to Add Plaintiff National Organization for Marriage California PAC, the Second Amended Complaint should be amended to reflect this change.
