UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
DAIMLER AG, a German corporation,
Case No.: 16-cv-875-JLS (MDD)
ORDER GRANTING UNOPPOSED
MOTION FOR LEAVE TO FILE
FIRST AMENDED COMPLAINT
A-Z WHEELS LLC d/b/a USARim.COM,
(ECF No. 30)
Presently before the Court is Plaintiff Daimler AG’s Motion for Leave to File First
Amended Complaint (“Leave Mot.”). (ECF No. 30-1.) Although Plaintiff indicates that
“Defendants’ counsel did not consent to the filing of an amended complaint[,]” (Pl.
Daimler AG’s Notice of Mot. for Leave to File First Am. Compl. 2 n.1, ECF No. 30),
Defendants have not opposed Plaintiff’s Leave Motion. Compare S.D. Cal. Civ. L.R.
7.1(e)(2) (“[E]ach party opposing a motion . . . must file that opposition . . . not later than
fourteen . . . calendar days prior to the noticed hearing.” (emphasis removed)), with (Leave
Mot. 1 (indicating hearing date of July 13, 2017)). Such failure to oppose a motion “may
constitute a consent to the granting of a motion or other request for ruling by the [C]ourt.”
S.D. Cal. Civ. L.R. 7.1(f)(3)(c). Further, “[t]he [C]ourt should freely give leave [to amend
a complaint] when justice so requires.” Fed. R. Civ. P. 15(a)(2); see also In re Tracht Gut,
LLC, 836 F.3d 1146, 1152 (9th Cir. 2016) (noting that denying leave to amend requires the
presence of at least several of the following: “bad faith, undue delay, prejudice to the
opposing party, and futility”).
In the present case, Plaintiff seeks only to file an amended complaint in order to add
“new information regarding the various defendants[,]” such as corrected business names
and locations. (Leave Mot. 2–3.) And because Defendants have not opposed the Motion,
they have simultaneously failed to demonstrate any bad faith, undue delay, prejudice to the
opposing party, or futility in amendment, and consented to the Court granting Plaintiff’s
requested relief. Accordingly, the Court GRANTS Plaintiff’s Leave Motion. Plaintiff
SHALL file a complete version of the Amended Complaint and corresponding Exhibits
(see ECF Nos. 30-2, 30-4 to -84) within seven days of the date on which this Order is
IT IS SO ORDERED.
