Battle v. Kadosh, Inc.

00-1523 | 4th Cir. | Dec 7, 2000

Before NIEMEYER, LUTTIG, and MICHAEL, Circuit Judges. Dismissed by unpublished per curiam opinion. Sherry D. Battle, Appellant Pro Se. Ira Michael Steingold, STEIN- GOLD & MENDELSON, Portsmouth, Virginia, for Appellee. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. See Local Rule 36(c).


Sherry D. Battle appeals from the district court’s order dis- missing a civil complaint filed by a corporation, Elite Child, Inc., in which she is the sole shareholder. The notice of appeal was signed only by Battle, who is not an attorney. It is well settled that a corporation cannot appear in federal court except through its attorney. Rowland v. California Men’s Colony, 506 U.S. 194, 201-02 (1993). Accordingly, we grant the Appellee’s motion to dismiss the appeal. We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the ma- terials before the court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
