BRYAN P. STERLING,
C/A No. 4:17-1746-MBS-TER
Presently before the court is Plaintiff’s motion entitled “Motion to Adjust titles
of Defendant’s or Clearify.” (Doc. #14). In this motion, Plaintiff states that “while
reviewing the order of the court allowing pro se litagation the plaintiff noticed the
court has not put the official capacity on the defendants names. Both parties are named
in the hand written complaint as to there official and there individual capacity
. . .” (Id.)(errors in original). Thus, Plaintiff requests that if “by mistake the plaintiff
did not mark this on the 1983 lawsuit packet it is requested that the partys be sued in
both individual and official capacitys” and that if the mistake was made that the court
“adjust for the record to agin show there offical and individual capacitys.” (Id.)(errors
In a sentence at the bottom of the motion (doc. #14), Plaintiff states that “[i]t
is also the Plaintiffs [sic] request that Exhibits E-J be entered into the record.”
This motion is being treated as a motion to amend the complaint and the motion
is granted.1 Therefore, the Clerk of Court is directed to place in the caption of the case
under the Defendants’ names “official and individual capacity.” Additionally, the
Clerk of Court is directed to attach the Exhibits designated as “E-J” as supporting
documents to the original complaint and enter it as an amended complaint.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
