UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF KANSAS
FAYE HILL JACKSON,
Case No. 20-2469-JWB
WAL-MART STORES EAST, LP (d/b/a WALMART STORES EAST I, LP),
On September 28, 2020, the court entered an order to show cause, instructing
defendants to file a status report to demonstrate the citizenship of the parties to establish
subject matter jurisdiction (ECF No. 8). Specifically, the ownership of defendant WalMart Stores East, LP was unclear. On October 13, 2020, defendants filed their response
(ECF No. 10). Defendants’ response addresses the membership of Wal-Mart Stores East,
LP. WSE Management, LLC is its general partner and WSE Investment, LLC is its limited
partner; the sole member of these LLCs is Wal-Mart Stores East, LLC. Walmart, Inc. is
the sole member of the LLC; there are no other owners. Wal-Mart Stores East, LP is
therefore a citizen of Delaware and Arkansas. The court finds that it has subject matter
jurisdiction over this case based on these assertions. Accordingly, the court finds that
defendants have satisfied their burden of showing why this case should not be dismissed
for lack of subject matter jurisdiction.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
