FORM OF A MOTION TO AMEND
AND ITS SUPPORTING DOCUMENTATION

A party who moves to amend a pleading must describe the type of the proposed amended pleading in the motion (i.e., motion to amend answer, motion to amend counterclaim).  Any amendment to a pleading, whether filed as a matter of course or upon a motion to amend, must reproduce the entire pleading as amended. The proposed amended pleading must be submitted at the time of filing a motion to amend.

In addition, any motion to amend a pleading must be accompanied by a version of the proposed amended pleading that shows – through redlining, underlining, strikeouts, or other similarly effective methods – how the proposed amended pleading differs from the operative pleading; provided, however, that pro se litigants shall be exempted from this requirement.
