LHF Productions Inc v. Does 1-19
MINUTE ORDER directing plaintiff to move to amend its complaint; plaintiff's 84 praecipe is stricken as improper by Judge Ricardo S Martinez. (RS)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON
LHF PRODUCTIONS, INC.,
Case No. C16-1175 RSM
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
complaint. Dkt. #84 at 1. This request stems from LHF’s failure to properly name the
remaining defendants in this matter. Although LHF had previously named ten defendants in
its Amended Complaint, its Second Amended Complaint named one defendant. Compare Dkt.
#20, with Dkt. #82. Pursuant to Local Civil Rule 7(m), parties who discover an error in a
document filed with the Court can file a praecipe asking the Court to consider a corrected
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
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.
