v line


Corporations, companies, associations, firms, partnerships, societies, and joint stock companies, as well as individuals. 1 USC (note: this term, when used in the legal context, can be confusing since whether it refersto entities other than natural persons is often dependent on context and official interpretation. e.g. Are corporations entitled, under limited circumstances, entitled to appointment of counsel in federal court? The clear wording of 1 USC seems to include them but the courts, using their semantic expertise, have denied this.)
