Defendants filed a Motion to Dismiss for failure to state a claim pursuant to Federal Rule
of Civil Procedure 12(b)(6) on December 5, 2016. ECF 27. Defendants’ argue that Plaintiff’s
Complaint lacks factual assertions necessary to support several of his claims. Plaintiff’s
memorandum in response to Defendants’ motion asserts numerous facts not alleged in his
Complaint. In their reply, Defendants correctly note that these new facts may not be considered
by the Court in resolving Defendants’ motion because they are not alleged in the Complaint.
The Court interprets Plaintiff’s response as requesting leave to file an amended
complaint. The Court GRANTS Plaintiff leave to amend his complaint, DENIES Defendants’
pending Motion to Dismiss (ECF 27) as moot, and will evaluate the merits of any subsequent
motion to dismiss by Defendants after Plaintiff files his First Amended Complaint. Plaintiff has
until February 20, 2017, to file his First Amended Complaint.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
DATED this 6th day of February, 2017.
