Motions to Dismiss

When a motion to dismiss is filed, the non-moving party has a right to amend its pleading once within 21 days.  Fed. R. Civ. P. 15(a)(1)(B).  If the non-moving party elects not to amend its pleading to address the purported deficiencies raised by the motion (or seek leave to amend its pleading again), then the motion to dismiss will proceed in its normal course and, if the moving party prevails, the Court may dismiss the case with prejudice and not provide further opportunity to amend the pleading absent extraordinary circumstances.  If the non-moving party amends its pleading, then the moving party (unless ordered otherwise by the Court) shall file within 21 days of the amended pleading either: (1) an answer or (2) a new motion to dismiss.
