UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
October 22, 2010
SCOTT N. JOHNSON, PLAINTIFF,
ZARTOSHT, INC., AND JRSV, INC. DEFENDANTS.
The court is in receipt of defendant JRSV, Inc.'s, "Answer to Complaint", and "Motion to Dismiss" [Docket #9], filed by Robert Cristando 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 JRSV, Inc. Accordingly, the "Answer to Complaint", and "Motion to Dismiss" [Docket #9] is STRICKEN. Defendant JRSV, Inc. is granted fourteen (14) days from the issuance of this order to properly appear in this action through licensed counsel.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
