ORDER that 59 Motion to Have the District Court Clerk File Stamp or Signature Complaint and Summons is denied without prejudice to filing a motion to amend complaint. Signed by Magistrate Judge George Foley, Jr on 1/5/17. (Copies have been distributed pursuant to the NEF - MMM)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
LVMPD, et al.,
GEORGE A. TOLIVER,
Case No. 2:14-cv-00906-RFB-GWF
This matter is before the Court on Plaintiff’s Motion to Have the District Court Clerk File
Stamp or Signature Complaint and Summons (ECF No. 59), filed on December 29, 2016.
On November 21, 2016, Plaintiff filed an amended complaint (ECF No. 57). Plaintiff
requests that the Clerk of the Court file stamp the amended complaint and summons to facilitate
service. Pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 15, a party may amend its pleading once as a matter of course
within 21 days after serving it, or if the pleading is one to which a responsive pleading is required,
21 days after service of a responsive pleading. Fed. R. Civ. P. 15(a)(1). In all other cases, a party
may amend its pleading only with the opposing party’s written consent or the court’s leave. Fed. R.
Civ. P. 15(a)(2). The Court therefore denies Plaintiff’s Motion without prejudice to him filing a
motion to amend his complaint pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 15. Accordingly,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Plaintiff’s Motion to Have the District Court Clerk File
Stamp or Signature Complaint and Summons (ECF No. 59) is denied without prejudice to filing a
motion to amend complaint.
DATED this 5th day of January, 2017.
GEORGE FOLEY, JR.
United States Magistrate Judge
