IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS EASTERN DIVISION
October 10, 2008
INTERNATIONAL GOLDEN FOODS, INC., PLAINTIFF,
BEL OASIS, ETC., DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Milton I. Shadur Senior United States District Judge
International Golden Foods, Inc. ("International") has filed this action against Bel Oasis ("Bel"), its supplier of imported dates, invoking federal jurisdiction in diversity of citizenship terms. Because Complaint ¶2 fails to identify the location of Bel's principal place of business, as required by 28 U.S.C. §1332(c)(1), International's counsel is ordered to file a prompt amendment to the Complaint so that the existence of the required diversity can be confirmed. In the meantime, because this Court recognizes the possibility that a successful demonstration can be made in that respect, this Court has issued its typical initial scheduling order.
