ORDER REMANDING ACTION TO ORANGE COUNTY SUPERIOR COURT
Based upon Plaintiffs, Children's Hospital of Orange County and Children's Hospital at Mission's Motion to Amend, the court orders that Temp Unlimited, Inc. be joined as a Defendant to the main action brought by Plaintiffs, Children's Hospital of Orange County and Children's Hospital at Mission. Further, the court finds that the joinder of Temp Unlimited, Inc. as a Defendant eliminates the court's diversity jurisdiction because both Plaintiffs, Children's Hospital of Orange County and Children's Hospital at Mission, and Defendant, Temp Unlimited Inc., are residents of the State of California, thereby precluding the court's continued retention of jurisdiction of this matter. Accordingly, the court hereby orders that this action be remanded to the state court for further proceedings.
