Wright et al v. Dorchester Insurance Company Ltd.
ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE by Magistrate Judge Kirtan Khalsa. (jdm)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEW MEXICO
CANNABIS 1 LLC,
DORCHESTER INSURANCE COMPANY, LTD., and
CANNASURE INSURANCE SERVICES,
ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE
THIS MATTER comes before the Court on the Amended Complaint for a Civil Case,
Doc. 7, filed November 14, 2023 (“Complaint”),
The original Complaint indicated that Plaintiffs are “Cannabis 1 LLC (Roger Wright,
Audrey Wright),” the Plaintiffs are “Roger Wright & Audrey Wright dba Cannabis 1 LLC” and
Roger Wright and Audrey Wright are “Cannabis 1’s owners.” Complaint at 1, 5, Doc. 1, filed
October 19, 2023. The Court notified Plaintiffs it is not clear whether the entity Cannabis 1 LLC
is a plaintiff and that if Cannabis 1 LLC is a plaintiff, then it must be represented in this action
by an attorney authorized to practice before this Court. See Order at 3-4 (quoting D.N.M.LRCiv. 83.7 (“A corporation, partnership or business entity other than a natural person must be
represented by an attorney authorized to practice before this Court”)). Because the original
Complaint failed to state a claim, the Court ordered Plaintiffs to file an amended Complaint.
The Amended Complaint, which indicates that the sole Plaintiff is Cannabis 1 LLC, is
signed by “Audrey Wright for Cannabis 1 LLC.” See Doc. 7 at 1, 5, filed November 14, 2023.
Audrey Wright cannot represent Cannabis 1 LLC in this case because she is not an attorney
authorized to practice before this Court. Cannabis 1 LLC must be represented by an attorney
authorized to practice before this Court. See D.N.M.LR-Civ. 83.7.
IT IS ORDERED that Audrey Wright, within 21 days of entry of this Order, shall either
show cause why the Court should not dismiss this case because Cannabis 1 LLC is not
represented by an attorney authorized to practice before this Court or have an attorney who is
authorized to practice before this Court enter an appearance on behalf of Cannabis 1 LLC.
Failure to timely show cause or have an authorized attorney enter an appearance on behalf of
Cannabis 1 LLC may result in dismissal of this case.
