Duban et al v. Waverly Sales Co et al
ORDER denying as moot 6 Motion to Dismiss. Signed by Chief Judge Linda R Reade on 7/22/2011. (pac)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF IOWA
MARTHA DUBAN and THOMAS
WAVERLY SALES CO. and DALE
The matter before the court is Defendant Waverly Sales Co.’s “Motion to Dismiss”
(“Motion”) (docket no. 6). On May 24, 2011, Plaintiffs Martha and Thomas Duban filed
a Complaint (docket no. 2) in the instant action. On June 13, 2011, Waverly Sales Co.
filed the Motion. On June 20, 2011, Plaintiffs filed an Amended Complaint (docket no.
“It is well-established that an amended complaint supercedes an original complaint
and renders the original complaint without legal effect.” In re Wireless Tel. Fed. Cost
Recovery Fees Litig., 396 F.3d 922, 928 (8th Cir. 2005) (citing In re Atlas Van Lines,
Inc., 209 F.3d 1064, 1067 (8th Cir. 2000)). The Motion seeks to dismiss the original
Complaint—not the Amended Complaint. Because the Amended Complaint supercedes the
original Complaint and renders it legally ineffective, the Motion (docket no. 6) is DENIED
IT IS SO ORDERED.
DATED this 22nd day of July, 2011.
