UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
CAPITOL RECORDS, LLC,
No. 12-cv-95 (RJS)
REDIG! INC., JOHN OSSENMACHER, and
RICHARD J. SULLIVAN, District Judge:
On October 21, 2014, Plaintiff Capitol Records, LLC submitted a letter seeking leave to
file its Second Amended Complaint to join as plaintiffs two of its affiliated companies, Capitol
Christian Music Group, Inc. and Virgin Records IR Holdings, Inc.
On October 24, 2014,
Defendants ReDigi Inc., John Ossenmacher, and Larry Rudolph submitted a letter in opposition.
(Doc. No. 157.) For the reasons discussed below, the Court grants Plaintiffs request.
"Although Rule 15(a) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure provides that leave to amend
'shall be freely given when justice so requires,' it is within the sound discretion of the [Court] to
grant or deny leave to amend." McCarty v. Dun & Bradstreet Corp., 482 F.3d 184, 200 (2d Cir.
2007). Leave to amend may be properly denied for "undue delay, bad faith or dilatory motive on
the part of the movant, repeated failure to cure deficiencies by amendments previously allowed,
undue prejudice to the opposing party by virtue of allowance of the amendment, [or] futility of the
amendment." Ruotolo v. City ofNew York, 514 F.3d 184, 191 (2d Cir. 2008).
Here, Plaintiff's proposed amended complaint involves mostly technical changes that are
not the result of undue delay or bad faith and would not require additional discovery. Therefore,
the Court finds that Defendants would not suffer undue prejudice from permitting Plaintiff to file
its proposed Second Amended Complaint. Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED THAT
Plaintiff shall file the proposed amended complaint attached to their October 21, 2014 letter by
October 30, 2014.
