JEAN C. HAMILTON, District Judge.
This matter is before the Court on plaintiff's motion for leave to file an amended complaint. Plaintiff did not submit a proposed amended complaint with the motion.
"[I]n order to preserve the right to amend the complaint, a party must submit the proposed amendment along with its motion." Clayton v. White Hall School Dist., 778 F.2d 457, 460 (8th Cir. 1985). As a result, the Court will deny the motion without prejudice to refiling with a proposed amended complaint.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff's motion for leave to file an amended complaint [ECF No. 7] is DENIED without prejudice.
