Plaintiff Hector Casillas ("Plaintiff") seeks leave to amend his complaint pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 15(a)(2). (Doc. 47).

Pursuant to Rule 15(a), "leave [to amend] is to be freely given when justice so requires." Fed. R. Civ. P. 15. "[L]eave to amend should be granted unless amendment would cause prejudice to the opposing party, is sought in bad faith, is futile, or creates undue delay." Martinez v. Newport Beach, 125 F.3d 777, 785 (9th Cir. 1997).
The proposed amended complaint Plaintiff seeks to file will be the first amended complaint. There is no indication that the amendment is sought in bad faith, is futile, or will create undue delay. Good cause having been shown, Plaintiff's motion is GRANTED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
