Bemacki's Motion to Dismiss (the "Officers' Motion to Dismiss"), (ECF No. 13); and, (2) Defendant Commonwealthof Virginia's Motion to Dismiss (the "Commonwealth Motion to Dismiss"), (ECF No. 15), (collectively, the "Motions to Dismiss").* The Officers' Motion to Dismiss was filed pursuant toFederal Rule ofCivil Procedure 12(b)(6),^ and the Commonwealth Motion to Dismiss was filed pursuant to Federal Rules ofCivil Procedure 12(b)(l)^ and 12(b)(6). Willoughby did not respond to either of the Motions to Dismiss, and the time to do so has expired. The Court dispenses with oral argument becausethe materials before it adequately present the facts and legal contentions, and argument would not aid the decisional process. The *Both Motions to Dismiss provided Willoughby with appropriate notice pursuant to Roseboro v. Garrison, 528 F.2d 309, 310 (4th Cir. 1975). {See ECF Nos. 13,15.) ^Rule 12(b)(6) provides thata party may move to dismiss a complaint for "failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted."
