Proceedings: IN CHAMBERS-ORDER REMANDING ACTION TO LOS ANGELES
COUNTY SUPERIOR COURT
On November 30, 2010, Plaintiff GB Inland Properties, LLC ("GB Inland") filed a complaint in Los Angeles County Superior Court against Defendant Arnoldo Ruiz and Doe defendants 1 through 10 for unlawful detainer. Defendant removed this case to federal court on January 28, 2011, both on the basis of diversity of citizenship, 28 U.S.C. § 1332, and under the civil rights removal statute, 28 U.S.C. § 1443(1). On February 3, 2011, the Court issued an Order to Show Cause ("OSC") [Doc. #3] why this action should not be remanded on the grounds that (1) the amount in controversy is less than the jurisdictional minimum for diversity jurisdiction; (2) Defendant does not identify a federal constitutional right that the California courts will not enforce; and (3) removal was untimely.
Defendant did not respond to the OSC and the deadline to do so-February 10, 2011- has now passed. Therefore, this action is hereby REMANDED to Los Angeles County Superior Court for the reasons discussed in the OSC.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
