Under Local Civil Rule 3-9(b), "[a] corporation, unincorporated association, partnership or other such entity may appear only through a member of the bar of this Court." Defendant Everyclick, Ltd. recently filed a "defence and counterclaim," signed by its Managing Director (a signature is present, but it is unclear what name has been signed). There is no indication that this person is a "member of a bar of this Court." See Civ. L. R. 11-1. As such, the answer filed by defendant is STRIKEN. Defendant should also be aware that default was entered against it on March 4, 2010, and a motion for default judgment is now pending (Dkt. Nos. 7, 13). A hearing on the motion for default judgment has been noticed for May 13, 2010. To avoid the entry of default judgment, defendant must move to set aside the entry of default -- in compliance with the local rules of the Northern District of California and the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure -- no later than MAY 12, 2010.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: April 28, 2010.
