UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
Case No. 2:23-cv-01809-RFB-NJK
DESH VEGAS, LLC, et al.,
[Docket No. 7]
AKR EVENTS INC., et al.,
Pending before the Court is Plaintiffs’ certificate of interested parties. Docket No. 7.
To assist federal courts in ensuring that diversity jurisdiction exists, the disclosure
14 statement filed by each party “must name—and identify the citizenship of—every individual or
15 entity whose citizenship is attributed to that party.” Fed. R. Civ. P. 7.1(a)(2). For purposes of
16 diversity jurisdiction, “an LLC is a citizen of every state of which its owners/members are
17 citizens.” Johnson v. Columbia Props. Anchorage, LP, 437 F.3d 894, 899 (9th Cir. 2006).
18 “Moreover, if any member of [an LLC] is itself a partnership or association (or another LLC), the
19 Court needs to know the citizenship of each ‘sub-member’ as well.” Diamos v. Specialized Loan
20 Servicing, LLC, 2014 WL 12603136, at *1 (N.D. Cal. Jan. 31, 2014). Plaintiffs’ certificate of
21 interested parties fails to identify citizenship attributed to them. See Docket No. 7.
Accordingly, Defendant must file an amended certificate of interested parties complying
23 with Fed. R. Civ. P. 7.1(a)(2) by November 22, 2023.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: November 15, 2023
