Long Timer's Group

2009 | Cited 0 times | D. Maine | December 1, 2009


In my November 12, 2009 Order I noted that the plaintiff Long Timer's Group, Inc. is a corporation and that under First Circuit law a corporation cannot appear in federal court without a lawyer. See Instituto de Education Universal Corp. v. United States Dep't of Educ., 209 F.3d 18, 22 (1st Cir. 2000); In re Las Colinas Dev. Corp., 585 F.2d 7, 13 (1st Cir. 1978); J.J.R. Distributing Corp. v. Sandler Bros., 2009 WL 2562669 n.16 (D. Me.). I gave the Long Timer's Group, Inc. until November 30, 2009 to obtain a lawyer. Since the plaintiffs have failed to respond within the allotted time to my November 12, 2009, Order concerning the corporation's ability to proceed without a lawyer and unsealing of filings, it is now


1. The sealed materials shall be unsealed; and

2. Long Timer's Group, Inc. is DISMISSED as a party plaintiff.
