District Judge Ted Stewart LUNDBERG & ASSOCIATES, P.C. and SHELLPOINT MORTGAGE SERVICING, INC., Chief Magistrate Judge Dustin B. Pead Defendants. Defendants NewRez LLC d/b/a Shellpoint Mortgage Servicing (Shellpoint) and Lundberg & Associates, P.C. (Lunberg), each respectively move the court to dismiss the Complaint filed by pro se Plaintiffs Scott and Nissa Stanfield. 1 (ECF No. 16, ECF No. 17.) Defendants both assert the court should dismiss the complaint for lack of subject-matter jurisdiction. Plaintiffs filed a response agreeing with Defendants’ arguments and the deficiencies in their original complaint. (ECF No. 18.) To remedy these deficiencies, Plaintiffs subsequently filed an Amended Complaint titled “Amended Petition and Request for Emergency Preliminary Injunctive Relief and Verified Claim for Damages.” This Amended Complaint brings new claims and a new assertion for jurisdiction – the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). Based upon the filing of the Amended Complaint the court denies without prejudice Defendants’ motions. 2 1 This matter is referred to the undersigned from Judge Ted Stewart pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B). (ECF No. 4.) 2 This order does not consider whether Plaintiffs’ Amended Complaint establishes subject-matter jurisdiction.
