Burningham v. El Pollo Loco
MEMORANDUM DECISION AND ORDER denying 5 Motion to Amend Complaint. Signed by Magistrate Judge Brooke C. Wells on 7/21/2017. (las)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF UTAH, CENTRAL DIVISION
MEMORANDUM DECISION AND ORDER
DENYING MOTION FOR LEAVE TO
ELPOLLO LOCO, INC. DBA EL POLLO
Case No. 2:17-cv-0430 BCW
Magistrate Judge Brooke Wells
Plaintiff, Sam Burningham, by and through counsel, Michael Studebaker, seeks leave to
amend the Complaint. 1 In support, Plaintiff cites to “Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 15(a)(2),
which states, in relevant part, ‘A party may amend its pleading once as a matter of course…with
the opposing party’s written consent…”” 2 Plaintiff, however, fails to provide any indication that
the opposing party has given written consent. Instead, Plaintiff simply attaches the new
proposed Complaint that names a different Defendant.
Accordingly, the court DENIES the Motion to Amend.
DATED this 21 July 2017.
Brooke C. Wells
United States Magistrate Judge
Docket no. 5.
