Aslani v. McCarthy
MEMORANDUM Order: For the reasons stated in this memorandum order, motion to dismiss 46 is granted. Accordingly, defendants Amy Truelove, Kathleen Kashima and Timothy Murphy are dismissed from the Amended Complaint. Signed by the Honorable Milton I. Shadur on 8/2/2017:Mailed notice(clw, )
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE
UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS, AMY
TRUELOVE, KATHLEEN KASHIMA,
and TIMOTHY MURPHY,
Case No. 16 C 10476
Amy Truelove, Kathleen Kashima and Timothy Murphy, the remaining individual
defendants targeted by pro se plaintiff Maryam Aslani ("Aslani"), have filed their
"Memorandum in Support of Their Motion To To [sic] Dismiss Amended Complaint" (the
"Memorandum," Dkt. No. 45). Just as was true of former codefendant Renee McCarthy
("McCarthy"), whom this Court dismissed from this action on Eleventh Amendment grounds
(see its July 6, 2017 opinion, Dkt. No. 43), the actions that Aslani ascribes to all of the current
movants were also taken by them as employees of the University of Illinois acting within the
scope of their University duties, and therefore call for their dismissal on Eleventh Amendment
grounds (just as was the case with McCarthy).
Accordingly each of those remaining individual defendants is also entitled to be
dismissed from the Amended Complaint, and this Court so orders. That then leaves as Aslani's
sole remaining defendant the Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois, and this action will
go forward on that basis.
