III part series of questions:
1.If the Defendant filed the permission to amend the complaint and the document reads MTD in the docket at the top then...A plaintiff may amend the complaint “as a matter of course” within 21 days after the defendant serves its answer or motion to dismiss- instead of Rule 15?

2. How do you mend a complaint and not affect the jurisdiction?
Amendment to the complaint affecting the court's jurisdiction triggered the court's heightened scrutiny of the amendment, a result plaintiffs ordinarily hoped to avoid. See Hensgens v. Deere & Co., 833 F.2d 1179 (5th Cir. 1987)

Do you have any suggestion of a good example of an amended complaint that you'd consider what the court maybe typically looking for with the document I already entered- claim as Breach of Contract, Title VII, and Harassment.
As I understand an amended complaint replaces the original and Jurisdiction can be lost-so dismissed!
