Bey v. City of Philadelphia
The plaintiff sued, invoking 1983, the Moroccan Treaty of 1787, the Free Moorish-American Zodiac Constitution, etc. At 424: "In cases that allow for Doe defendants, other identified defendants have been able to represent the unknown individual defendants' interests." Allowing claims against John Doe defendants to go forward when the other identified defendants had been dismissed would offend due process. See: Bey v. City of Philadelphia, 6 F.Supp.2d 422 (E.D.Pa. 1998).
