Corporations are people, my friend?

A simple but important legal principle is highlighted by the latest filing in this lawsuit. Defendant McKnight Logistics Inc. filed a pro se answer but it was refused by the judge. While an individual may represent one’s self in a case in Indiana, a corporation may appear in federal courts only through licensed counsel. As such, the Defendant, a corporation, must find legal counsel and refile.
