IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
United States District Court
Northern District of California
Case No. 17-cv-00419-MMC
EQUIFAX, INC., et al.,
ORDER DENYING AS MOOT
DEFENDANT TD BANK USA, N.A.’S
MOTION TO DISMISS; VACATING
Before the Court is defendant TD Bank USA, N.A.’s (“TD Bank”) “Motion to
Dismiss Plaintiff’s Complaint Pursuant to Rule 12(b)(6),” filed March 17, 2017. On April
7, 2017, plaintiff filed an “Amended Complaint for Damages.”
A party may amend a pleading “once as a matter of course within . . . 21 days after
service of a responsive pleading or 21 days after service of a motion under Rule 12(b),
(e), or (f), whichever is earlier.” See Fed. R. Civ. P. 15(a). “[A]n amended pleading
supersedes the original, the latter being treated thereafter as non-existent.” Bullen v. De
Bretteville, 239 F.2d 824, 833 (9th Cir. 1956), cert. denied, 353 U.S. 947 (1957).
In the instant case, plaintiff filed her Amended Complaint within 21 days after
service of defendant’s motion to dismiss, and, consequently, was entitled to amend as of
right. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 15(a).
Accordingly, the Court hereby DENIES as moot TD Bank’s motion, and VACATES
the April 28, 2017 hearing scheduled thereon.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: April 7, 2017
