UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF INDIANA
BRENDA L. WHITE,
SOUTHEAST HEALTH CENTER,
PETER KIM DR.,
ORDER DENYING MOTION TO AMEND COMPLAINT
On July 27, 2020, the Court entered final judgment in this case,
dismissing Ms. White's federal claims with prejudice and her state law claims
without prejudice. Dkt. 9. On August 26, 2020, Ms. White filed a motion to
amend her complaint with this Court. Dkt. .
"Once final judgment has been entered in a case, the district court lacks
jurisdiction to entertain a motion for leave to amend the complaint unless the
plaintiff also moves for relief from the judgment." Childress v. Walker, 787 F.3d
433, 442 (7th Cir. 2015). Ms. White has not moved to alter or amend the
judgment, Fed. R. Civ. P. 59(e), nor has she moved for relief from the final
judgment, Fed. R. Civ. P. 60. See dkt. 10. As a result, the Court cannot
entertain Ms. White's motion, and her motion to amend the complaint, dkt.
, is denied.
