MANUEL GONZALES, Plaintiff, v. GLOBAL EQUITY LENDING ET AL., Defendants.


ORDER GRANTING LEAVE TO

AMEND

Plaintiff has moved under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 15 for leave to file an amended complaint. Dkt. 12. Defendants have not yet appeared in the case to file any motions or responsive pleadings. Under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 15(a)(2), "[t]he court should freely give leave when justice so requires." Amendment should be granted when it will not cause the opposing party undue prejudice, is not sought in bad faith, and is not an exercise in futility. DCD Programs, Ltd. v. Leighton, 833 F.2d 183, 186 (9th Cir. 1987). Finding no reason to deny amendment at this early stage of the litigation, the Court GRANTS Plaintiff's motion for leave to amend.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
