DOES 1-19, Defendants. 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 The following MINUTE ORDER is made by direction of the Court, the Honorable Ricardo S. Martinez, Chief United States District Judge: On June 20, 2017, Plaintiff LHF Productions, Inc. (“LHF”) filed a praecipe asking the Court to allow it to replace its Second Amended Complaint (Dkt. #82) with another amended 23 complaint. Dkt. #84 at 1. This request stems from LHF’s failure to properly name the 24 remaining defendants in this matter. Although LHF had previously named ten defendants in 25 26 its Amended Complaint, its Second Amended Complaint named one defendant. Compare Dkt. 27 #20, with Dkt. #82. Pursuant to Local Civil Rule 7(m), parties who discover an error in a 28 document filed with the Court can file a praecipe asking the Court to consider a corrected 29 30 document; the party seeking to correct an error “must specify by docket number the document being corrected and the corrections by page and line number.” LCR 7(m). LHF’s praecipe MINUTE ORDER– 1 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 fails to meet the requirements of Local Civil Rule 7(m). Here, LHF does not specify the corrections it seeks to make to its Second Amended Complaint by page and line number. Instead, LHF simply states the complaint it seeks to file in place of its Seconded Amended Complaint “correctly reflects that the parties subject to default judgment remain in this case.” Dkt. #84 at 1. Given LHF’s failure to comply with Local Civil Rule 7(m), LHF’s praecipe (Dkt. #84) is STRICKEN as IMPROPER. Additionally, the Court notes that because LHF seeks to make substantive changes to its Second Amended Complaint, it must do so by moving to amend its complaint. IT IS SO ORDERED this 22nd day of June 2017. 13 14 WILLIAM McCOOL, Clerk 15 16 By: /s/ Rhonda Stiles Deputy Clerk 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 MINUTE ORDER– 2
