Pursuant to Rule 12(b)(1) associated with Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Advance moves to dismiss Count we for not press the site enough subject material jurisdiction. On its face, Count I alleges a claim for declaratory judgment pursuant into the Missouri Declaratory Judgment Act. Dismissal for not enough subject material jurisdiction calls for defendants to exhibit that the purported foundation of jurisdiction is deficient either on its face or in its factual allegations. Titus v. Sullivan, 4 F.3d 590, 593 (8th Cir. 1993). In a facial challenge like this, the Court presumes real most of the factual allegations concerning jurisdiction. Id.
Defendants are proper that the Court does not have jurisdiction over Count I due to the fact Missouri Declaratory Judgment Act provides Missouri circuit courts exclusive jurisdiction over Missouri Declaratory Judgment Act claims. See Mo. Rev. Stat. В§ 527.010. Within their recommendations in Opposition to your movement to Dismiss, plus in their simultaneously-filed movement for keep to File complaint that is amended Plaintiffs acknowledge that the Court does not have jurisdiction within the Missouri Declaratory Judgment Act claim.

Therefore, the Court provides Plaintiffs leave to amend Count I to improve its claim to at least one in line with the Federal Declaratory Judgment Act.
