Crowder v. Farinella et al
ORDER granting 18 Motion to Amend/Correct. Signed by Judge Victor A. Bolden on 11/28/17. (McDonough, S.)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF CONNECTICUT
CHRISTOPHER H. CROWDER,
DR. FARINELLA, et al.,
CASE NO. 3:17-cv-1135 (VAB)
RULING ON MOTION TO AMEND COMPLAINT
Christopher H. Crowder moves for leave to file an Amended Complaint. ECF No. 18. As
the defendants have not yet responded to the Complaint, ECF No. 1, Mr. Crowder may amend
his Complaint once as of right. Therefore, leave is not required, and Mr. Crowder’s motion to
amend is GRANTED. The Clerk is directed to docket the Amended Complaint.
In the Initial Review Order, the Court dismissed Mr. Crowder’s claims against defendants
Lightner, Moore, and Greene. ECF No. 9 at 10-12. In the Amended Complaint, Mr. Crowder
supplements his allegations regarding medical care, withdraws his claim against Ms. Greene, and
reasserts his claims against Ms. Lightner and Mr. Moore. Mr. Crowder has not alleged new facts
that would alter the analysis in the Initial Review Order. His claims against Ms. Lightner and Mr.
Moore therefore remain dismissed for the reasons stated in the Initial Review Order.
SO ORDERED at Bridgeport, Connecticut, this 28th day of November 2017.
