Douglas v. Wells Fargo Bank notes two different approaches that the Fifth Circuit has taken to an aspect of summary-judgment practice: “We have previously addressed the issue of new claims raised for the first time in response to a motion for summary judgment. We have taken two different approaches. The first approach states that a ‘claim which is not raised in the complaint but, rather, is raised only in response to a motion for summary judgment is not properly before the court.’ The second approach
instructs the district court to treat a new claim raised in response to a motion for summary judgment as a request for leave to amend. The district court must then determine whether leave should be granted.” No. 18-11567 (March 26, 2021) (footnotes omitted).
