King County brought this request on the last 21 day for pleading amendments. (See Dkt. No. 10.) This is its first request to amend a pleading. 22 Plaintiffs’ response to King County’s motion was due on Tuesday, January 17, 2016. See 23 W.D. Wash. Local Civ. R. 7(d)(3), (5). Plaintiffs did not file a response by that deadline. The 24 Court considers this lack of response “as an admission that the motion has merit.” W.D. Wash. 25 Local Civ.
