AVIATION SALES, LLC, Plaintiff,
PEOPLE EXPRESS AIRLINES, INC., et al., Defendants.
MILTON I. SHADUR, Senior District Judge.
This Court has received:
1. the motion of plaintiff Aviation Sales, LLC ("Aviation Sales") for the entry of an ex parte judgment by confession against the three defendants in this action, which motion has been noticed up for presentment on October 30, 2013; and
2. a document captioned "Answer" prepared pro se by one of those three defendants, Michael Morisi ("Morisi"), which he seeks to have treated as the answer for all three defendants.
But Morisi is not a lawyer, so that under the law he cannot act on behalf of the other two codefendants-People Express Airlines, Inc. (a corporation) and TEM Enterprises ("TEM").
Both for that reason and because the Answer does not at all conform to the requirements of Fed.R.Civ.P. ("Rule") 8(b), at this point Aviation Sales' Complaint has not been met by an appropriate responsive pleading.
Because the Complaint has not been answered in accordance with legal requirements, all three defendants should be aware of their need to respond appropriately on or before the designated October 30 presentment date.
