Date Filed#Document Text
April 5, 2012 15 Opinion or Order of the Court MEMORANDUM RULING: Beusa argues that even if FFT is added, the court may ignore its citizenship under the jurisprudence that permits disregard of nominal or formal parties. FFT is alleged to be responsible based on its ownership of and obligation to care for the road where the accident happened. It may have an indemnity agreement with Beusa, or it may have untold insurance, but those additional avenues of recovery do not render FFT a mere nominal party any morethan it does the negligent driver o f a car who happens to be well insured. Accordingly, Plaintiffs 11 Motion For Leave to File Amended Complaint is granted, and this case is remanded to the 42nd Judicial District Court, DeSoto Parish, Louisiana, where it was pending as Case No. 79739. Signed by Magistrate Judge Mark L Hornsby on 4/5/2012. (crt,Putch, A)
