PHILLIPS, 11 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 10 Plaintiffs, 12 13 No. C 17-06693 WHA v. 14 SECURITAS SECURITY SERVICES USA INC., and TESLA MOTORS INC., 15 Defendants. ORDER FOLLOWING OCTOBER 4 HEARING / 16 17 At the hearing on October 4, almost an hour was spent going over the problems in the 18 way plaintiff tried to amend and serve her complaint. At the end of the hearing, the judge 19 allowed plaintiff another try and gave specific guidance, which will not be repeated here. 20 Defendants’ motions to strike, dismiss, and provide a more definite statement are DENIED 21 22 AS MOOT. As a reminder, plaintiff must revise and properly file the single second amended 23 complaint and summons by OCTOBER 31 AT NOON. A copy of the issued summons 24 (i.e., signed and sealed copies from the Clerk’s office) and second amended complaint must be 25 served together on defendants. Detailed information can be found in the Pro Se Handbook, 26 which can be obtained in print at the Clerk’s office or at 27 28 Plaintiff is also reminded that the single second amended complaint must comply with Rules 8 and 10 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. In part, Rule 8 requires that each 1 allegation in the complaint be written as “a short and plain statement of the claim showing that 2 the pleader is entitled to relief,” and “[e]ach allegation must be simple, concise, and direct.” 3 To promote clarity, Rule 10 requires a party to “state its claims or defenses in numbered 4 paragraphs, each limited as far as practicable to a single set of circumstances.” The above is an 5 explanatory reminder only, not exhaustive guidance. Plaintiff must refer to the Federal Rules of 6 Civil Procedure for the rules in their entirety. 7 8 IT IS SO ORDERED. 9 Dated: October 9, 2018.
