IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF ARIZONA
FRS GC LLC,
Oak Tree Management LLC, Milagro

On June 1, 2017, this Court entered an order that ended with:
IT IS ORDERED that by June 9, 2017, Plaintiff shall file a
supplement to the complaint listing the names and citizenship of every
member of each limited liability company, or this case will be dismissed,
without prejudice, for lack of federal subject matter jurisdiction.
On June 9, 2017, Plaintiff filed a supplement that says:
Plaintiff FRS GC LLC is a limited liability company organized
under the laws of the State of Delaware. It has only one member: Princeton
Alternative Income Fund, L.P., a limited partnership organized under the
laws of the State of Delaware. Princeton Alternative Income Fund, L.P.—
and thus its subsidiary plaintiff FRS GC LLC—are citizens of: Delaware,
California, New Jersey, New York, Illinois, Georgia, Maryland, Texas, and
the British Virgin Islands.
This supplement failed to fully comply with the Court’s June 1, 2017 order.
Specifically, it fail to identify each member of the limited partnership (which is the sole
member of Plaintiff), what type of entity each partner is (if any), and on a partner by
partner basis, allege citizenship of the partner.1 The Court will give Plaintiff one (and
only one) further opportunity to allege jurisdiction. Therefore,
IT IS ORDERED that by June 14, 2017, Plaintiff shall file a second supplement
to the complaint listing the names and citizenship of every partner of Plaintiff’s sole
member,2 or this case will be dismissed, without prejudice, for lack of federal subject
Dated this 12th day of June, 2017.
See Carden v. Arkoma Associates, 494 U.S. 185, 195-96 (1990) (holding that
partnerships take on the citizenship of every general and limited partner).
In the first supplement, Plaintiff listed every member of the Defendant LLCs.
