ORDER GRANTING LEAVE TO AMEND COMPLAINT; AND ORDER VACATING HEARING
On March 2, Plaintiff moved for leave to amend his complaint to include elements required by Chapman v. Pier 1 Imports (U.S.), Inc., 631 F.3d 939 (9th Cir. 2011). This motion was set for hearing on Monday, April 25, 2011. Under Civil Local rule 7.1(e)(2), the oppositions of the two remaining Defendants, Sears, Roebuck & Co., and Costco Wholesale Corporation, were therefore due no later than Monday, April 11, 2011.
On March 29, Sears filed a notice of non-opposition. Costco filed no opposition or notice of non-opposition, though a joint motion to which it was a signatory suggested that amendment was expected. (Joint Mot. to Continue Pretrial Deadlines, Docket no. 87, at 2:22--26.) Under Civil Local Rule 7.1(e)(3)(c), failure to file an opposition as required under Rule7.1(e)(2) may constitute consent to the granting of the motion. The Court so construes Costco's failure to oppose the motion, which is therefore GRANTED. No later than April 22, 2011, Plaintiff shall file his amended complaint.
The hearing on calendar for Monday, April 25 is VACATED. IT IS SO ORDERED.
