FRANZISKA I. COLLIER, ET AL., PLAINTIFFS,
PARADISE HILLS CONVALESCENT CENTER, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: M. James Lorenz United States District Court Judge
ORDER DENYING MOTION TO RECONSIDER
On July 15, 2008, Defendants Celestine Arambulo, D.O., Kaiser Foundation Hospitals, Southern California Permanente Medical Group and Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Inc. ("Moving Defendants") filed an ex parte application for reconsideration ("Application"). Moving Defendants request the court to reconsider its order filed June 30, 2008 remanding the action to state court for failure to join Defendant Paradise Hills Convalescent Center ("Paradise") in the notice of removal, as required by 28 U.S.C. § 1446(a) or properly explain the absence of its joinder in the notice of removal, as required by Prize Frize, Inc. v. Matrix (U.S.), , 167 F.3d 1261 (9th Cir. 1999), overruled on other grounds in Abrego Abrego v. The Dow Chem. Co., 443 F.3d 676 (9th Cir. 2006). The Application is DENIED because the removal statute precludes reconsideration of remand orders as much as it precludes their appellate review.
28 U.S.C. § 1447(d); Seedman v. U.S. Dist. Ct., 837 F.2d 413, 414 (9th Cir. 1988).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
