Case 1:20-cv-06770-GHW Document 57 Filed 09/18/22 Page 1 of 1 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK ----------------------------------------------------------------- X : JOHN DOE, : : Plaintiff, : : -v : : COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY, : : Defendant. : : ----------------------------------------------------------------- X GREGORY H. WOODS, United States District Judge: USDC SDNY DOCUMENT ELECTRONICALLY FILED DOC #: _________________ DATE FILED: 9/18/2022 1:20-cv-6770-GHW ORDER “In considering a motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim pursuant to Rule 12(b)(6), a district court may consider the facts alleged in the complaint, documents attached to the complaint as exhibits, and documents incorporated by reference in the complaint.” DiFolco v. MSNBC Cable LLC, 622 F.3d 104, 111 (2d Cir. 2010) (internal quotations omitted). “Where a document is not incorporated by reference, the Court may nevertheless consider it where the complaint relies heavily upon its terms and effect, thereby rendering the document integral to the complaint.” Id. (internal quotations omitted). Plaintiff’s Amended Complaint, Dkt. No. 41, pervasively relies upon the terms and effects of an article posted on the website Bwog on February 6, 2018. See, e.g., Dkt. No. 41 ¶¶ 126–27, 134, 138, 154, 197, 206, 214–19. That article thus appears to be integral to Plaintiff’s Amended Complaint. The parties, however, have not provided the article to the Court. Accordingly, the parties are hereby ORDERED to provide the Court with a copy of the Bwog article no later than September 21, 2022. Any objections to this request must be submitted to the Court no later than September 20, 2022. SO ORDERED. Dated: September 18, 2022 New York, New York __________________________________ GREGORY H.
