defendants Prime Healthcare Services, Inc., Prime Healthcare Services-Saint John Leavenworth, LLC,
and Prime Healthcare Services – Providence, LLC (collectively “Prime”). Plaintiffs filed an Amended

after defendants’ Rule 12(b) motion, plaintiffs’ Amended Complaint is timely filed and defendants’

moot. Defendants have until December 26, 2014 to respond to plaintiffs’ Amended Complaint (Doc.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated this 10th day of December, 2014, at Kansas City, Kansas.
