IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS EASTERN DIVISION
February 17, 2011
IN RE: 500 OAKWOOD LLC, ET AL.,
DEBTORS. MAGIL CORPORATION, PLAINTIFF,
AMERITECH ELEVATOR COMPANY, INC., DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Milton I. Shadur Senior United States District Judge
(Bankr. N.D. Ill. 10-34821) (Adv. 10-2387)
Someone named LaToya Henderson ("Henderson") has just tendered to the Clerk's Office, and that office has affixed a civil action label to, a set of documents comprising only (1) Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law issued by Bankruptcy Judge John Squires on January 27 in Adversary No. 10-2387 (part of Bankruptcy Case No. 10-34821, In re 500 Oakwood LLC, et al.),
(2) a civil cover sheet that describes the "Cause of Action" as "Findings of Facts and Conclusion of Law," (3) a form communication to the Clerk of the Bankruptcy Court describing the Record on Appeal as consisting of the Civil Cover Sheet and a Transmittal Letter (the latter is not included among the papers filed or delivered to this Court's chambers) and (4) a photocopy of the Bankruptcy Court docket in the adversary proceeding. That incomplete set of papers does not of course suffice as an effective appeal.*fn1 Accordingly this Court strikes the entire filing sua sponte and dismisses this action for the lack of any showing of subject matter jurisdiction--but this dismissal is without prejudice to the matter being retendered in proper form.
