Plaintiff, No. C 10-01875 LB ORDER STRIKING DEFENDANT'S JUNE 14, 2010 FILING (DOCKET NO. 6); DENYING AS MOOT PLAINTIFF'S MOTION TO STRIKE (DOCKET NO. 7) 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 MICHAEL CARDOZE, Defendant. _____________________________________/ Plaintiff filed a Complaint against Defendant on April 30, 2010. Docket No. 1. On June 14, 2010, Defendant filed a "Reply to Plaintiff's Request for Entry of Judgment." Docket No. 6. On July 2, 2010, Plaintiff filed a Motion to Strike Defendant's "Reply to Plaintiff's Request For Entry of Judgment." Docket No. 7. According to Plaintiff, it has not yet served Defendant with the Complaint or moved for entry of default. Declaration of Thomas P. Riley at 4. Prior to the deadline for filing a responsive pleading, Defendant may file either an Answer to the Complaint or a motion pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure (FRCP) 12(b) or 12(e). See Fed. R. Civ. P. 7(a) & 12. Defendant's June 14, 2010 filing was neither a pleading under FRCP 7 nor a motion under FRCP 12(b) or 12(e). Further, based on the title of Defendant's June 14, 2010 C 10-01875 ORDER STRIKING DEFENDANT'S JUNE 14, 2010 FILING (DOCKET NO. 6); DENYING AS MOOT PLAINTIFF'S MOTION TO STRIKE (DOCKET NO. 7) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 12 For the Northern District of California filing and Plaintiff's assertion that it has not served Defendant with the Complaint or filed a motion for entry of default, it appears Defendant filed docket number six by mistake. Because Defendant's June 14, 2010 filing does not conform with the FRCP, the Court HEREBY STRIKES docket number six from the record. Accordingly, the Court DENIES AS MOOT Plaintiff's Motion to Strike (Docket No. 7) and VACATES the corresponding August 19, 2010 hearing date. IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: July 8, 2010 _______________________________ LAUREL BEELER United States Magistrate Judge 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 C 10-01875 ORDER STRIKING DEFENDANT'S JUNE 14, 2010 FILING (DOCKET NO. 6); DENYING AS MOOT PLAINTIFF'S MOTION TO STRIKE (DOCKET NO. 7) 2
