UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
EDGARDO L. PEREZ-DE LEON,
Case No. 12-CV-14577
HON. GEORGE CARAM STEEH
ORDER GRANTING MOTION FOR EXTENSION OF TIME TO
RESPOND TO MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT (DOC. # 13),
DENYING AS MOOT MOTION FOR WAIVER OF FEES (DOC. # 12),
AND STRIKING AMENDED COMPLAINT AND JURY DEMAND (DOC. # 11)
Plaintiff has moved for a 60 day extension of time to file his response to
defendant’s pending motion for summary judgment, citing a requirement for additional
time for research and to prepare his response. Plaintiff has also moved for “waiver of
fees,” but cites no court fees he is required to pay in this case that was removed from
Oakland County Circuit Court, and the court is aware of none. Finally, although
defendant’s answer to the complaint was filed in October 2012, plaintiff has now filed an
“amended complaint and jury demand,” without first seeking leave of court or giving
defendant an opportunity to respond to a request. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 15(a).
Accordingly, plaintiff’s motion for an extension of time in which to file his
response to the motion for summary judgment is hereby GRANTED. Plaintiff may file
his response on or before August 5, 2012. A reply may be filed in accordance with
applicable rules. The waiver of fees request, which does not identify any court fees
plaintiff is required to pay, is DENIED AS MOOT. Finally, plaintiff’s amended complaint
is hereby STRICKEN for failure to first seek leave of court. If desired, plaintiff may seek
leave to amend by way of separate request, allowing defendant to respond, prior to or in
conjunction with the briefing on the motion for summary judgment.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
