OFFICER PAYMENT, et al.
Plaintiff filed an Amended Complaint on December 17, 2012 (Dkt. No. 3), which renders
his original Complaint (Dkt. No. 1) without legal effect. See In re Atlas Van Lines, Inc., 209 F.3d

Amended Complaint, is hereby DISMISSED. See Barnes v. United States, 111 Fed. Appx. 441, 443
(8th Cir. 2004) (noting that certain defendants had been dismissed by virtue of their absence from
plaintiff’s amended complaint).
SO ORDERED this 27th day of February, 2013.
