UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
October 29, 2009
GABRIELA PACHECO, AN INDIVIDUAL, PLAINTIFF,
PREFERRED MEAL SYSTEMS, INC., A ANSWER CORPORATION, ERIC SHELLENBACK, AN INDIVIDUAL, HEATHER MCDERMOTT, AN INDIVIDUAL, AND DOES 1 THROUGH 25, INCLUSIVE, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Hon. Jeffrey T. Miller United States District Judge
ORDER DENYING MOTION TO FILE SUPPLEMENTAL PLEADING, GRANTING LEAVE TO FILE FIRST AMENDED COMPLAINT AND AMENDED Doc. No. 23
Pending before the court is a joint motion to file a supplemental pleading which will add claims to Plaintiff's complaint. (Doc. No. 23). The supplemental claims arose after Plaintiff filed her initial complaint. While supplemental pleadings are allowed by Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 15(d), the Civil Local Rules for the Southern District of California require that "every pleading to which an amendment is permitted . . . shall be retyped and filed so that it is complete in itself without reference to the superseded pleading." CivLR 15.1. Therefore, the court DENIES the motion to file a supplemental pleading.
Instead, the court GRANTS Plaintiff leave to file a first amended complaint, which will include all of Plaintiff's current claims. In addition, the court GRANTS Defendants leave to file an amended answer, including additional affirmative defense, within fourteen days of the filing of Plaintiff's first amended complaint.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
