Amended Complaint
A second (or third, or fourth, etc.) version of a complaint submitted by the plaintiff or petitioner. A party may amend a complaint to correct facts, add new claims, substitute discovered names for persons sued as "Doe" defendants, or revise a cause of action after the court has found the complaint inadequate.
