The opinion of the court was delivered by: James V. Selna United States District Judge
On October 1, 2010 defendant Brad B. Miller ("Miller") removed Case No. 30-2010-003533264 from the Superior Court of the State of California for the County of Orange. Deutsche Bank National Trust Company v. Miller, Case No. 10-1487 JVS (MLGx) ("Removal I"). Because there was no apparent basis for jurisdiction, the Court issued an order to show cause (Removal I, Docket No. 3), and remanded the case when Miller could not establish a basis for jurisdiction. (Removal I, Docket No. 5.)
Three days after the remand in Removal I, Miller filed the present Notice of Removal ("Removal II") seeking to remove the very same action. In contrast to his last Notice of Removal, he cites an explicit basis for removal: 28 U.S.C. § 1334(b). That section relates to bankruptcy:
b) Except as provided in subsection (e)(2), and notwithstanding any Act of Congress that confers exclusive jurisdiction on a court or courts other than the district courts, the district courts shall have original but not exclusive jurisdiction of all civil proceedings arising under title 11, or arising in or related to cases under title 11.
(28 U.S.C. § 1334(b); emphasis supplied.) The unlawful detainer action filed in the Superior Court is no a bankruptcy case nor is it related to a bankruptcy case. There is no basis to invoke this Court's jurisdiction on the basis of Section 1334(b).
For the reasons set forth in this Court's Order remanding the case in Removal I, there is no other basis for jurisdiction. (Removal I, Docket No 5, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit A.)
Miller is admonished that he may be subject to sanctions if he makes any further frivolous attempts to initiate proceedings in this Court.
The case is remanded the Superior Court of the State of California for the County of Orange for lack of jurisdiction.
