UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT CENTRAL DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
January 8, 2010
OPTION ONE MORTGAGE CORPORATION ET AL
The opinion of the court was delivered by: The Honorable Gary Allen Feess
CIVIL MINUTES - GENERAL
Proceedings: (In Chambers)
ORDER RE: DISMISSAL
Defendants Sand Canyon Corporation, formerly known as Option One Mortgage Corporation, and American Home Mortgage Servicing, Inc. filed a motion to dismiss Plaintiff's complaint on November 10, 2009. (Docket No. 9.) On December 10, 2009, the Court granted Defendants' motion to dismiss Plaintiff's first cause of action with leave to amend. (Docket No. 14.) Because Plaintiff failed to adequately plead a federal claim, the Court did not address the remaining state law causes of action in the complaint. Plaintiff was given leave to amend his complaint by January 4, 2010. However, the Court indicated that if Plaintiff failed to timely amend to state a federal cause of action, then the Court would exercise its discretion to decline supplemental jurisdiction over the remaining state law claims.
Plaintiff has failed to timely amend his complaint. Thus, because Plaintiff has failed to allege a federal cause of action over which the Court has original jurisdiction, the Court DISMISSES the pendant state law claims without prejudice. 28 U.S.C. § 1367(c); Brown v. Lucky Stores, Inc., 246 F.3d 1182, 1189 (9th Cir. 2001).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
