UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
June 25, 2010
DOUGLASS HARPHAM, PLAINTIFF,
NRA GROUP LLC, D/B/A NATIONAL RECOVERY AGENCY DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Seybert, District Judge
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Presently pending before the Court is Plaintiff's Complaint. This Complaint asserts two state law claims, and asserts subject matter jurisdiction based on diversity of citizenship. But before this case proceeds further, the Court must be satisfied that subject matter jurisdiction exists. Plaintiff is a New York citizen. And Defendant, NRA Group, LLC, is a limited liability company. For diversity purposes, a limited liability company is a citizen of every state that its members are citizens of. See Handelsman v. Bedford Village Associates Ltd. Partnership, 213 F.3d 48, 51 (2d Cir. 2000); Castillo Grand LLC v. Sheraton Operating Corp., 09-CV-7197, 2009 WL 4667104, *1 (S.D.N.Y. 2009). Consequently, within thirty (30) days, NRA Group, LLC is directed to file and serve: (1) a declaration setting forth the relevant facts concerning the citizenship of each of its members; and (2) documentation supporting these relevant facts.
