Paradine, LLC v. Felfel Corp. d/b/a Filfel Mediterranean Fast Food Restaurant, No. 16 C 7586, Slip Op. (N.D. Ill. Aug. 31, 2016) (Shadur, Sen. J.).

Judge Shadur advised defendant Felfel to respond to plaintiff Paradine’s Lanham Act false designation and unfair competition case regarding Felfel’s Filfel Mediterranean Fast Food Restaurant.

An individual who appeared to be an owner of Felfel filed a hand-written paper seeking an extension of indeterminate length. The Court, however, advised Felfel that because it chose to operate in corporate form, it was required to have legal representation in federal court. Papers from individual owners would not suffice.
