A. Movement to Dismiss Count I for Lack of Subject Matter Jurisdiction
Pursuant to Rule 12(b)(1) regarding the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Advance moves to dismiss Count we for not enough subject material jurisdiction. On its face, Count I alleges a claim for declaratory judgment pursuant to your Missouri Declaratory Judgment Act. Dismissal for not enough subject material jurisdiction calls for defendants to demonstrate that the purported foundation of jurisdiction is deficient either on its face or in its factual allegations. Titus v. Sullivan, 4 F.3d 590, 593 (8th Cir. 1993). In a facial challenge like this, the Court presumes real all the factual allegations jurisdiction that is concerning. Id.
Defendants are proper that the Court does not have jurisdiction over Count I as the Missouri Declaratory Judgment Act offers Missouri circuit courts exclusive jurisdiction over Missouri Declaratory Judgment Act claims. See Mo. Rev. Stat. В§ 527.010. Inside their recommendations in Opposition to your movement to Dismiss, as well as in their simultaneously-filed movement for keep to File Amended grievance, Plaintiffs acknowledge that the Court does not have jurisdiction throughout the Missouri Declaratory Judgment Act claim. Plaintiffs state that the mention of the Missouri Declaratory Judgment Act had been an error, a remnant of a draft that is previous of issue. Plaintiffs explain on the Federal Declaratory Judgment Act that they should have based their claims in Count I.
As the Court won’t have jurisdiction over Count I as alleged in the face of this issue, the Court grants Advance’s movement pertaining to Count we. Nonetheless, Advance makes no argument so it was prejudiced by this blunder. See generally speaking Dale v. Weller, 956 F.2d 813, 815 (8th Cir. 1992) (reversing denial of leave to amend problem where defendants are not prejudiced by the wait). Consequently, the Court provides Plaintiffs leave to amend Count I to alter its claim to at least one on the basis of the Federal Declaratory Judgment Act.
