Yeager v. City of San Diego, et al.

Appellee's Respondent Brief


The issue on appeal was whether the District Court judge abused its discretion when the Court dismissed Appellant's third amended complaint without leave to amend. Appellees argued Appellant's complaint failed to state a claim against the Appellees for which relief could be granted. Appellees further argued that Appellant's 83-page pleading did not contain a short and plain statement of the claims against Appellees sufficient to put Appellees on notice of their alleged wrongdoings.

Appelless consisted of a group of 85 defendants consisting of the City of San Diego, various marinas, boat yards, and yacht clubs.

Following briefing, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeal affirmed the District Court's dismissal of Appellant's Third Amended Complaint without leave to amend.
