04/24/2019 09:00 Mosbarger, Tamara L 17CV02020 Thomas, Victor vs. Lowe, Troy et al Plaintiff's Request for Judicial Notice is granted. On Plaintiff's Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings, the Court is required to review Plaintiff's First Amended Complaint, take all factual statements as true, and determine if the complaint states a cause of action against Defendants. In this case, it does not, as each of Plaintiff's causes of action are time-barred. In addition, Plaintiff's own allegations reveal that he has no ownership interest in several of the items of personal property that are the subject of his first cause of action for conversion, and Plaintiff has omitted certain essential elements in his fourth cause of action for fraud/concealment. Because each of Plaintiff's claims for conversion, intentional infliction of emotional distress and fraud/concealment fail to state a cause of action, so too does his claim for conspiracy. Therefore, based on the defects in Plaintiff's First Amended Complaint, Plaintiff's Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings is denied. The Court will prepare a form of Order.
