STURM v. CITY OF INDIANAPOLIS et al
ORDER denying Plaintiff's 68 Appeal of Magistrate Judge Decision (denying leave to file Second Amended Complaint) to District Court. Signed by Judge Richard L. Young on 4/13/2016. (TMD)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF INDIANA
CITY OF INDIANAPOLIS,
OFFICER CATHERINE HEDGES, in her
official and individual capacities, and
OFFICER GREGORY STEWART, in his
official and individual capacities,
ENTRY ON PLAINTIFF’S RULE 72 OBJECTION
Plaintiff objects to the Magistrate Judge’s Order denying him leave to file a
Second Amended Complaint. The Magistrate Judge based his decision on the following:
(1) Plaintiff filed his motion for leave more than nine months after the agreed upon and
court-ordered deadline; (2) Plaintiff had enough information at the time he filed his First
Amended Complaint to assert a battery claim against Officer Hatch and a Monell claim
against the City of Indianapolis; and (3) Defendants would be prejudiced by the addition
of new legal theories. Based on the court’s review of the record, the Magistrate Judge did
not commit any legal error or abuse his discretion. Accordingly, Plaintiff’s Objection
(Filing No. 68) is OVERRULED.
SO ORDERED this 13th day of April 2016.
RICHARD L. YOUNG, CHIEF JUDGE
United States District Court
Southern District of Indiana
