MEMORANDUM AND ORDER ENTERED: Judge Mitchell's Report and Recommendation (Doc. 5 ) and plaintiff's Objection (Doc. 10 ) to that Report and Recommendation are moot in light of the filing of plaintiff's Amended Complaint. Plaintiff's Amended Complaint (Doc. 11 ) is dismissed in part. Plaintiff's TCPA claims against defendants Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Elizabeth Warren are dismissed without prejudice for lack of standing. Plaintiff's TCPA claims asserted against defendant Democratic National Committee state a plausible claim under Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(6) and thus plaintiff may proceed with these claims. Plaintiff's Motion for Default Judgment (Doc. 12 ) is denied. The case is referred to Judge Mitchell for further proceedings, including issuing appropriate orders directing the issuance of summons and service on defendant Democratic National Committee. Signed by District Judge Daniel D. Crabtree on 7/16/2021. Mailed to pro se party Ursula Lenhardt by regular mail. (jal) (Entered: 07/16/2021)

P. 4(c)(3), at the address provided by plaintiff on page 13 of the amended complaint. Signed by Magistrate Judge Angel D. Mitchell on 7/16/21. Mailed to pro se party Ursula Lenhardt by regular mail.
