Filing 740

ORDER GRANTING MOTION ALLOWING THE PLAINTIFFS TO FILE A CONSOLIDATED AND AMENDED CLASS ACTION COMPLAINT granting (686) Motion to Consolidate Cases ; granting (686) Motion to Amend/Correct (686 in 1:20-cv-08924-CM, 686 in 1:20 cv-08924-CM) MOTION to Consolidate Cases 20-cv-10291 & 20-cv-10541 . MOTION to Amend/Correct File Amended Consolidated Complaint. in case 1:20-cv-08924-CM. Plaintiffs in these two class actions have filed a motion for permission to file a c onsolidate and amended class action complaint. (Docket #686). The proposed pleading would consolidate these two overlapping class action lawsuits; dismiss certain defendants; remove the request for declaratory relief, which would make money damages t he only form of relief sought; and add several new defendants on the federal (but not the state law) claims. Plaintiffs do not intend to assert state law claims against any newly-added defendants and do not seek to assert any state law claims against the proposed new defendants. They have represented to the court that they require no additional discovery if the new pleading is allowed. Defendants consent to the consolidation of the cases, the dismissal of certain defendants and the removal of a request for declaratory relief. They take no position on the addition of additional defendants on the federal claims, as to which the statute of limitations has not expired (Docket# 737). The motion is granted in all respects. The clerk of court is directed to remove the motion at Docket #686 from the court's list of open motions.. (Signed by Judge Colleen McMahon on 9/15/2022) BY ECF TO ALL COUNSEL Filed In Associated Cases: 1:20-cv-08924-CM, 1:20-cv-10291-CM, 1:20-cv-10541-CM (kv)
