ORDER. Defendants Motion To Dismiss 27 filed 09/25/2009, is DENIED WITHOUT PREJUDICE AS MOOT. By Judge Robert E. Blackburn on 01/11/2010.(sah, )
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO Judge Robert E. Blackburn Civil Case No. 09-cv-01913-REB-KLM RONALD STRICH, Plaintiff, v. THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, THE UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR, THE UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE, CARL SCHAEFER, individually and in his official capacity as a Lake County Colorado Commissioner, MICHAEL BORDOGNA, individually and in his official capacity as a Lake County Colorado Commissioner, KENNETH OLSEN, individually and in his official capacity as a Lake County Colorado Commissioner, MICHAEL HICKMAN, individually and in his official capacity as a former Lake County Colorado Commissioner, and ANY AND ALL UN KNOWN PERSONS WHO CLAIM AN INTEREST IN THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS ACTION, Defendants. ORDER DENYING WITHOUT PREJUDICE AS MOOT DEFENDANTS' MOTION TO DISMISS Blackburn, J. The matter before me is defendants' Motion To Dismiss [#27] filed September 25, 2009. The motion is ripe for determination. Nevertheless, on January 5, 2010, plaintiff sought leave to amend his complaint, and defendants did not object to that request. (See Plaintiff's Refiled Motion To Amend Complaint [#65] filed January 5, 2010.) Accordingly, the magistrate judge granted the motion to amend, and the First Amended Complaint has been accepted for filing. (See Minute Order [#67] filed
January 7, 2010; First Amended Complaint [#68] filed January 7, 2010.) The filing of an amended complaint moots a motion to dismiss directed at the complaint that is supplanted and superseded. See Griggs v. Jornayvaz, 2009 WL 1464408 at *1 (D. Colo. May 22, 2009); United States ex rel. Babb v. Northrop Grumman Corp., 2007 WL 1793795 at *1 (D. Colo. June 19, 2007). THEREFORE, IT IS ORDERED that defendants' Motion To Dismiss [#27] filed September 25, 2009, is DENIED WITHOUT PREJUDICE AS MOOT Dated January 11, 2010, at Denver, Colorado. BY THE COURT:
