Shophar v. Kansas, State of et al
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER: The court strikes defendant MOMs Club of Olathe East's Answer 52 . Signed by District Judge Daniel D. Crabtree on 3/23/2017. (ms)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF KANSAS
Case No. 16-CV-4043-DDC-KGS
STATE OF KANSAS, et al.,
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
On August 2, 2016, defendant Teena Wilke, acting pro se, filed an Answer on behalf of
defendant MOMs Club of Olathe East (Doc. 52). On August 11, 2016, the court ordered Ms.
Wilke to show cause why it should not strike the purported answer because parties proceeding
pro se may not represent other parties in federal court (Doc. 60). Ms. Wilke never responded.
The court thus strikes the Answer for the reasons explained in the Order to Show Cause. The
court notes that plaintiff since has filed a Second Amended Complaint (Doc. 90). Defendant
MOMs Club of Olathe East never has responded to that Complaint.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED THAT the court strikes defendant MOMs Club of
Olathe East’s Answer (Doc. 52).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated this 23rd day of March, 2017, at Topeka, Kansas.
