United States District Court, S.D. New York
January 27, 2004.
RICHARD B. COONS, Plaintiff -against- UNITED STATES TRUST COMPANY OF NEW YORK, Defendant
The opinion of the court was delivered by: LEWIS KAPLAN, District Judge
The complaint in this purported diversity action fails adequately to
allege the citizenship either of the plaintiff, see Sun Printing
& Publishing Ass'n v. Edwards, 194 U.S. 377 (1904);
Leveraged Leasing Administration Corp. v. PacifiCorp Capital,
Inc., 87 F.3d 44 (2d Cir. 1996); Depradine v. Nissan Infiniti
LT, No. 00 Civ. 6686 (LAK), 2000 WL 1280971, *1 (S.D.N.Y. Sept. 11,
2000), or the defendant, see 28 U.S.C. § 1332(c)(1). Absent
the filing, on or before February 5, 2004, of an amended complaint
adequately alleging the existence of complete diversity of citizenship,
the action will be dismissed.
