MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter is before the Court on defendants Bill
Gibson and Marc Ostrander’s motion for leave to file amended
answer (Filing No. 54).
Plaintiff has not responded to this
(See Docket Sheet.)
Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 15(a) provides that a
“court should freely give leave [to amend pleadings] when justice
Fed. R. Civ. P. 15(a)(2).
In Foman v. Davis, the
Supreme Court explained that absent “undue delay, bad faith or
dilatory motive on the part of the movant . . . undue prejudice
to the opposing party by virtue of allowance of the amendment” or
“futility of amendment,” leave should “be ‘freely given.’”
U.S. 178, 182 (1962).
After careful review, the Court finds that
defendants’ motion for leave to file amended answer will not
cause undue delay or prejudice and is not filed in bad faith.
IT IS ORDERED that defendants’ motion for leave to file
an amended answer is granted.
DATED this 17th day of May, 2011.
BY THE COURT:
