ORDER DECLINING EXERCISE OF SUPPLEMENTAL JURISDICTION OVER PLAINTIFF'S STATE LAW CLAIMS
This case was removed to federal court on March 23, 2010, based on federal question jurisdiction. Subsequent to removal, Plaintiff filed a First Amended Complaint in which only state law claims are alleged. Therefore, the Court may sua sponte decide whether to continue exercising supplemental jurisdiction over Plaintiff's state claims.
Under 28 U.S.C. § 1367(c)(3), a district court "may decline to exercise supplemental jurisdiction over a [state] claim" if "all claims over which it has original jurisdiction" have been dismissed. The court declines to continue exercising supplemental jurisdiction over Plaintiff's state claims. Therefore, this case is remanded to the Superior Court of California, in Sacramento County, from which it was removed.
