Pending before the Court is Defendant Eli Lilly and Company’s Motion to Dismiss the

Defendant filed the instant motion of February 26, 2015. Under the Local Rules, Plaintiff
Gregory Mayes had until March 30, 2015 to file an opposition to the motion to dismiss. See
Local Rule 7.1(d) (requiring each party opposing a dispositive motion to serve and file its
memorandum in opposition within thirty days). To date, no opposition has been filed. See ECF

During the April 29, 2015 Case Management Conference, the Court discussed the
pending motion to dismiss with the parties. Defendant further elaborated on its position that the
fifth and sixth causes of action should be dismissed. As important, Plaintiff, through counsel,
informed the Court that he did not oppose granting the motion.
The Court has been advised, having reviewed the record, Defendant’s brief, the
applicable law, and the parties’ positions. Accordingly, the Court hereby grants Defendant’s
Motion to Dismiss the Fifth and Sixth Causes of Action of Plaintiff’s First Amended Complaint
in its entirety. ECF No. 19. Counts Five and Six of Plaintiff’s First Amended Complaint (ECF
No. 15 at 14–15) are hereby dismissed. The case shall proceed on Counts 1 through 4. ECF No.
