UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
June 22, 2009
FIRST NATIONAL INSURANCE COMPANY OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
JURIN CONSTRUCTION, INC., ET. AL., DEFENDANTS.
The court is in receipt of defendants' Ronald R. Jurin, Wendy M. Jurin and Jurin Construction, Inc., "Answer to Complaint" [Docket #29], filed by Ronald R. Jurin, Wendy M. Jurin and Jurin Construction, Inc. in propria persona. It is well established that "a corporation may appear in the federal courts only through licensed counsel." Rowland v. California Men's Colony, 506 U.S. 194, 202 (1993) (emphasis added). Because no licensed counsel has appeared for the corporate defendant, there has been no proper appearance by defendant Jurin Construction, Inc. Accordingly, the "Answer to Complaint" [Docket #29] is STRICKEN as to defendant Jurin Construction, Inc. Defendant Jurin Construction, Inc is granted ten (10) days from the issuance of this order to properly appear in this action through licensed counsel.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
