AND NOW, this 15th day of June, 2017, upon consideration of defendant’s

June 12, 2017, and further upon consideration of plaintiff’s amended complaint (Doc. 8)
filed June 13, 2017, and the court noting that an amended pleading supersedes the

Pascack Valley Hosp., 303 F.3d 271, 276 (3d Cir. 2002); see also 6 CHARLES ALAN
WRIGHT ET AL., FEDERAL PRACTICE AND PROCEDURE § 1476 (3d ed. 2015), and the court

DENIED as moot and without prejudice.
Defendant shall respond to the amended complaint (Doc. 8) in accordance
with the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
