IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
TIMOTHY JOSEPH CARROLL,
CHRIS LUEBE, et al.,
The Court entered a memorandum and order on November 8, 2021,
granting the defendants' motion to dismiss and dismissing the plaintiff's
complaint for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted. Filing
55. However, on its own motion, the Court gave the plaintiff until December 1
to file an amended complaint. Filing 55 at 9. At the plaintiff's request, filing
56, the Court extended that time until December 30, filing 57.
That date, too, has now passed, and the plaintiff has not filed an
amended complaint. In its original memorandum and order, the Court
cautioned the plaintiff that "[i]f an amended complaint is not filed, judgment
will be entered without further notice." Filing 55 at 9. Nor were the
requirements for the amended complaint particularly onerous: the plaintiff
was simply directed to identify a specific defendant who had been on notice
that the plaintiff faced a substantial risk of harm. See filing 55 at 9 n.4.
The Court was not required to afford the plaintiff any leave to amend his
complaint, in the absence of a proper motion for leave to amend. See United
States v. Mask of Ka-Nefer-Nefer, 752 F.3d 737, 742 (8th Cir. 2014); see also
U.S. ex rel. Raynor v. Nat'l Rural Utilities Co-op. Fin., Corp., 690 F.3d 951, 958

(8th Cir. 2012). The Court is not required to wait indefinitely for the plaintiff
to exercise that privilege. Accordingly,
IT IS ORDERED that a separate judgment will be entered.
Dated this 10th day of January, 2022.
BY THE COURT:
John M. Gerrard
United States District Judge
