PROCEEDINGS (IN CHAMBERS): ORDER DECLINING TO EXERCISE SUPPLEMENTAL JURISDICTION AND DISMISSING ACTION WITHOUT PREJUDICE
On November 8, 2010, the Court dismissed Plaintiff's first claim for relief with prejudice for failure to file a "RICO Case Statement." In light of the Court's Order dismissing the only claim over which this Court has original jurisdiction, and after considering judicial economy, convenience, fairness, and comity, the Court declines to exercise supplemental jurisdiction over Plaintiff's remaining claims for relief. See 28 U.S.C.§ 1367(c); Satey v. JPMorgan Chase & Co., 521 F.3d 1087, 1091 (9th Cir. 2008) (quoting Carnegie-Mellon Univ. v. Cohill, 484 U.S. 343, 351 (1988) ("[I]n the usual case in which all federal-law claims are eliminated before trial, the balance of factors to be considered under the pendent jurisdiction doctrine -- judicial economy, convenience, fairness, and comity -- will point toward declining to exercise jurisdiction over the remaining state law
Accordingly, this action is DISMISSED without prejudice.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
