              NOTICE OF UNITED STATES’ MOTION TO DISMISS
          PLAINTIFF’S CLAIM PURSUANT TO RULE 12(b)(1) AND 12(b)(6)

        PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(1) and 12(b)(6), the

United States will move, on December 1, 2008 at 10:00 a.m. or as soon thereafter as it

may be heard, for the dismissal of plaintiff Kenny’s complaint with prejudice. Kenny

lacks standing to bring a claim under Section 1203 and Count I should be dismissed

pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(6) for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be

granted and pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(1) lack of subject matter jurisdiction.


                                                                                     2076248.1
   Case 3:08-cv-03921-GEB-TJB          Document 19       Filed 11/03/2008    Page 2 of 2



Count II of Kenny’s complaint should be dismissed pursuant Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(1)

and (6). The allegations of Count III fail to state a claim under 26 U.S.C. § 7431, and,

therefore, Count III should be dismissed pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(6). Last,

Kenny cannot state a claim for a Bivens remedy and, therefore, Count IV should be

dismissed pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(1) and(6).

       As grounds for this motion, the United States submits a memorandum in

support and proposed order. The specific relief sought in this motion is the dismissal

with prejudice of the plaintiff’s complaint in its entirety.


DATE: November 3, 2008.                           Respectfully submitted,
