The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. United States District Judge
On August 13, 2009 the United States, sued as the "Internal Revenue Service" and "District Director of Internal Revenue Service Technical Services Advisory Group Manager," ("the federal defendants"), removed this case. On September 21, 2009 the federal defendants filed a motion to dismiss Plaintiffs' complaint against them and a suggestion that after dismissal, this case should be remanded to state court.
On October 7, 2009 Plaintiffs filed a notice of voluntary dismissal of the federal defendants under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(a), and also requested this Court remand this case to state court following dismissal of the federal defendants. Since the federal defendants have been dismissed, this case is remanded to the Superior Court of California, San Joaquin County, from which it was removed.
