A movement to dismiss for failure to convey a claim under Fed.R.Civ.P. 12(b)(6) “is seen with disfavor and it is hardly ever given.” Lowrey v. Texas A M Univ. Sys., 117 F.3d 242, 247 (5th Cir.).

Gibson, 355 U.S. 41, 45-46 (1957); Blackburn v. City of Marshall, 42 F.3d 925, 931 (5th Cir.). Stated one other way, “a court may dismiss a grievance only when it’s clear that no relief might be awarded under any pair of facts that might be shown in line with the allegations.” Swierkiewicz v. Sorema, 122 S.Ct. 992, 998 (quoting Hishon v. King Spalding, 467 U.S. 69, 73).

The court must accept all well-pleaded facts in the complaint as true and view them in the light most favorable to the plaintiff Baker v. Putnal, 75 F.3d 190, 196 (5th Cir.) in reviewing a Rule 12(b)(6) motion. In governing on such a movement, the court cannot look beyond the pleadings. Id; Spivey v. Robertson, 197 F.3d 772, 774 Cir. that is(5th) cert. rejected, 530 U.S. 1229. The ultimate concern in a Rule 12(b)(6) movement is whether or not the issue states a legitimate reason behind action when it’s seen into the light many favorable to your plaintiff in accordance with every question settled and only the plaintiff. Lowrey, 117 F.3d at 247. A plaintiff, nevertheless, must plead certain facts, maybe perhaps maybe perhaps maybe not mere conclusory allegations, to prevent dismissal. Guidry v. Bank of LaPlace, 954 F.2d 278, 281 cir that is(5th).
