The opinion of the court was delivered by: J. Phil Gilbert U. S. District Judge
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
GILBERT, District Judge:
Before the Court is Plaintiff's motion for leave to file an amended complaint (Doc. 6). However, in this District, the original of a proposed amendment to a pleading or amended pleading itself should accompany the motion to amend so that it may be filed instanter if the motion is granted. All new material shall be underlined. It is sufficient to simply underline the names of new parties the first place they appear in amended pleadings. Similarly, when new claims or defenses are raised by amendment, it is sufficient that the number of the designated count or paragraphs identifying the amendments be underlined.
Local Rule 15.1; see FED.R.CIV.P. 15. Plaintiff did not submit a copy of his proposed amended complaint with his motion. Accordingly, this motion is DENIED without prejudice.
Plaintiff also filed a motion to dismiss Defendant Nahass from this action (Doc. 7). Voluntary withdrawal of any portion of his complaint is Plaintiff's right, and, accordingly, the motion is GRANTED; Defendant NAHASS is DISMISSED without prejudice from this action
IT IS SO ORDERED.
