Proposed Amendments Mostchoice filed counterclaims alleging that Netquote engaged in click fraud and, through agents, defamed Mostchoice. Netquote has moved to dismiss the complaints for failing to state a claim upon which relief can be granted and attacked the counterclaim for a lack of specific factual allegations. Netquote moves to amend its complaint to re-state its claims for click fraud and defamation, and to include an additional claim for tortious interference. A copy of the proposed amended complaint is attached hereto as Exhibit "A." WHEREFORE, Mostchoice prays that this Court Grant this Motion and Grant Leave to Amend its Counterclaim, and for such other and further relief deemed necessary and just by this Court.
