ORDER DENYING DEFENDANTS' 29 Objection, filed by City of Burton, a Michigan municipal corporation, Detective Eric Freeman, Burton Police Department, Dennis Gross, Detective/Sgt. Shawn Duncanson, Detective David Powell, Burton Police Department - Signed by Magistrate Judge R. Steven Whalen. (CCie)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
MICHAEL CLIFTON WATSON,
District Judge Arthur J. Tarnow
Magistrate Judge R. Steven Whalen
CITY OF BURTON, ET AL.,
ORDER DENYING OBJECTION TO/ MOTION TO STRIKE
On August 24, 2017, Plaintiff filed a Revised Amended Complaint [Doc. #24].
Before the Court is Defendants’ Objection to Plaintiff’s Revised Amended Complaint
[Doc. #29], which the Court construes as a motion to strike the revised amended
complaint. On August 16, 2017, I granted in part and denied in part Plaintiff’s motion to
amend his complaint. Specifically, I permitted amendment as follows:
“Accordingly, Plaintiff’s Motion for Leave to File Amended Complaint
[Doc. #13] is GRANTED IN PART, to the extent that the Amended
Complaint will be construed to raise the following claims: (1) violation of
the Fourth Amendment based on Plaintiff’s arrest; (2) violation of the Equal
Protection Clause of the Fourth Amendment; (3) Michigan common law
claim of false arrest; and (4) Michigan common law claim of false
imprisonment.” Opinion and Order [Doc. #23].
Plaintiff’s Revised Amended Complaint [Doc. #24] raises the four claims I
permitted in my previous order and deletes the claims on which I denied leave to amend.
It does not add any new Defendants or any new claims. Because it is completely
consistent with my August 16, 2017 order,
Defendants’ Objection/Motion [Doc. #29] is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
