i turned in a federal complaint, and forgot to edit out a 10

This answer was rated:

i turned in a federal complaint, and forgot to edit out a 10 page introduction, which while well written, was more of a research article than in legal format. I have now seen that such a format is not usually used in such filings. SHould I amend it and edit this ? or is it usually not a problem? thank you
Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.

Such introductions are not appropriate form for a federal complaint and as such it should be removed from your complaint. Under the federal rules of civil procedure, you are entitled one time as a matter of right before the other party responds to the suit to file an amendment and you should amend the complaint to conform to the proper format and rules, because while federal judges are a little tolerant of pro se litigants, they will still insist you follow the proper format.
