Proceedings: [IN CHAMBERS] ORDER REMANDING CASE

Plaintiff Southland Homes Real Estate and Investment LLC as trustee for the Hazel Trust #12572 ("Plaintiff") filed this case in state court for unlawful detainer. Defendants Jonathan Peraza and Monica Peraza ("Defendants") then filed a Notice of Removal, which removed this case from state to federal court. For the reasons that follow, the Court REMANDS the case to state court.

Plaintiff's Complaint states a simple state cause of action for unlawful detainer. Defendants Notice of Removal argues that federal jurisdiction is proper based upon federal question jurisdiction. (Notice of Removal 1.) But a review the Complaint makes clear that Defendants' argument fails. The Complaint does not rely on any federal law, so Defendants have not demonstrated a basis for federal jurisdiction. See 28 U.S.C. § 1441(a); Syngenta Crop Prot., Inc. v. Henson, 537 U.S. 28, 33 (2002) ("Under the plain terms of § 1441(a), in order properly to remove [an] action pursuant to that provision, [defendants] must demonstrate that original subject-matter jurisdiction lies in the federal courts.").
