McCullough v. Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc.
ORDER denying 18 Defendant, Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc.'s Motion to Dismiss Plaintiff's Amended Complaint. Defendant shall answer Plaintiff's Amended Complaint within fourteen (14) days of this Order. Signed by Judge Paul G. Byron on 9/15/2016. (SEN)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
MIDDLE DISTRICT OF FLORIDA
Case No: 6:16-cv-1473-Orl-40TBS
TOYOTA MOTOR SALES, U.S.A.,
This cause comes before the Court on Defendant, Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A.,
Inc.’s Motion to Dismiss Plaintiff’s Amended Complaint and Memorandum of Law
(Doc. 18), filed September 14, 2016. The Court does not require the benefit of Plaintiff’s
response to duly consider Defendant’s motion.
This Court’s Local Rules require that every motion requesting relief include “a
memorandum of legal authority in support of the request.” M.D. Fla. 3.01(a). Despite
labeling its two-page motion as including a memorandum of law, Defendant does nothing
more than recite the Iqbal/Twombly pleading standard and offer the naked assertion that
Plaintiff alleges insufficient facts to support her state law conversion claim. If Defendant
cannot be bothered to cite the law governing Plaintiff’s conversion claim and explain why
it believes the facts Plaintiff alleges are insufficient to state a cause of action, the Court
will exert a similar amount of effort in resolving Defendant’s motion to dismiss: see Pl.’s
Am. Compl., ¶¶ 28–30.
It is ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that Defendant, Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A.,
Inc.’s Motion to Dismiss Plaintiff’s Amended Complaint (Doc. 18) is DENIED. Defendant
shall answer Plaintiff’s Amended Complaint within fourteen (14) days of this Order.
DONE AND ORDERED in Orlando, Florida on September 15, 2016.
