CHAMBERS OF U.S. COURTHOUSE TONIANNE J. BONGIOVANNI UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE 402 E. STATE STREET, RM 6052 TRENTON, NJ 08608
Dear Mr. Thompson:
The Court is in receipt of your "Motion for Clarification" [Docket Entry No. 9]. Pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. R. 15(a)(1), "a party may amend its pleading once as a matter of course before being served with a responsive pleading." In this case, none of the Defendants have filed a responsive pleading as of today's date and therefore, Plaintiff does not need leave from the Court before filing an amended complaint.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court shall terminate Docket Entry No. 9 accordingly.
