Defendants removed the action to this Court on 21 April 22, 2014. On April 24, 2014, defendants filed a notice of errata, which indicated that defense 22 counsel inadvertently named Laurie Hill as one of the removing defendants, but she was not served 23 with the complaint. Defense counsel requests that the Court strike the name of Laurie Hill from the 24 list of defendants appearing in this action. (ECF No. 3.) Defendants’ request to strike shall be granted 25 and Laurie Hill’s name will be stricken from the list of defendants appearing in this action as 26 identified on the Court’s docket. 27 28 1 1 Further, a review of court records reveals that this action is duplicative of case number 1:13- 2 cv-01936-AWI-DLB, which was filed on November 21, 2013. Both actions allege that defendants 3 violated the First, Fifth, Sixth, Eighth and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution. 4 As the complaints are alleging the same facts against the same defendants, this case, as the later-filed 5 one, shall be dismissed as duplicative. 6 Accordingly, for the reasons stated, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED as follows: 7 1. Defendants’ request to strike the name of Laurie Hill from the list of defendants who have 8 appeared in this action is GRANTED; and 9 2. This action is DISMISSED as duplicative. 10 11 12 IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: /s/ Lawrence J. O’Neill April 30, 2014 UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE 3. 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
