IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE UNITED STATES FOR THE
MIDDLE DISTRICT OF ALABAMA, EASTERN DIVISION
WILLIAM M. LEE, as
Administrator of the Estate
of Kimberly Renee Tucker
Lee, Deceased, and ALFA
CIVIL ACTION NO.
The allegations must show that
the citizenship of each plaintiff is different from that
of each defendant.
28 U.S.C. § 1332.
The plaintiff William M. Lee has sued in his
capacity as personal representative for the estate of the
"[T]he legal representative of the estate of a
decedent shall be deemed to be a citizen only of the same
State as the decedent ...."
28 U.S.C. § 1332(c)(2).
Because the complaint does not set forth the citizenship
establish the ground for this court to assume jurisdiction
of this matter.
It is therefore the ORDER, JUDGMENT, and DECREE of the
court that the plaintiffs have until February 28, 2014, to
amend the complaint to allege jurisdiction sufficiently;
DONE, this the 18th day of February, 2014.
/s/ Myron H. Thompson
