Proceedings: [IN CHAMBERS] ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE RE REMAND RE LACK OF SUBJECT MATTER JURISDICTION
On August 2, 2012, this action was removed to this Court under 28 U.S.C. § 1441 and 1446. But removal appears to be improper for the reason(s) opposite the boxes checked:
[ ] Removing party has not alleged when the first defendant to be served was served.

[ ] Removing party has not alleged when each served defendant was served.
 All defendants have not joined in the notice of removal. Generally, all served defendants must join in removal. Chicago, Rock Island, & Pac. Ry. Co. v. Martin, 178 U.S. 245, 248, 20 S.

[X] A partnership or unincorporated association is joined as a party. For diversity or alienage jurisdiction to be proper, none of the partners or members, including limited partners, can be a citizen of the same state as any opposing party. The citizenship of all the entity's partners must therefore be alleged. Carden v. Arkoma Assocs., 494 U.S. 185, 192-96, 110 S. Ct. 1015, 1019-21, 108 L. Ed. 2d 157 (1990); Rockwell Int'l Credit Corp. v. United States Aircraft Ins. Group, 823 F.2d 302, 304 (9th Cir. 1987).
