IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
JESSICA MATTIE LEE WOMACK,
MOULTON COLLEGE, AND
The plaintiff’s initial complaint alleges Activate Learning and Moulton College
breached an employment contract. (Filing No. 1). Defendants moved to dismiss the
complaint, arguing they are not parties to any contract with Plaintiff and this court lacks
personal jurisdiction over them. (Filing No. 11).
Plaintiff now moves to amend her complaint to add The Oxford Partnership and its
human resources representative, Louisa Thomas, as additional defendants. (Filing Nos.
23-26). Defendants Activate Learning and Moulton College have not responded to the
motions, and the deadline for responding has passed. The motions are deemed
Although Plaintiff has not filed her proposed amended complaint with her motion,
the court will grant Plaintiff’s motion to add The Oxford Partnership and Louisa Thomas
as additional defendants. However, after the amended complaint is filed, it will be subject
to the court’s initial review as to Plaintiff’s claims against these newly added defendants,
(see 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)), and to determine if the amended complaint supersedes or
merely supplements the original complaint. See NECivR 15.1(b). As such, this order
does not moot Defendants’ pending motion to dismiss. (Filing No. 11).
IT IS ORDERED:
Plaintiff’s motions, (Filing Nos. 23-26), are granted.
Plaintiff’s amended complaint shall be filed on or before February 3, 2017.
Summons shall not issue as to the newly added defendants, The Oxford
Partnership and Louisa Thomas, pending further order of the court after
completing an initial review of the amended complaint.
The clerk shall mail a copy of this order to Plaintiff at her address of record.
