July 29, 2011
ROBERT LEE GOOD, PLAINTIFF,
JACQUELINE F. ARRINGTON, CHANDAR PANDEY, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Dean D. Pregerson United States District Judge
ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF'S MOTION FOR PRELIMINARY AND PERMANENT INJUNCTION AND DISMISSING CASE [Motion filed on 7/28/11]
Presently before the court is Plaintiff Robert Lee Good's Motion for Preliminary and Permanent Injunction. (Dkt. No. 3). Plaintiff's complaint asserts several causes of action against Defendants under the California Civil Code and California Family Code.*fn1
Plaintiff asserts that this court has jurisdiction over this "Diversity Complaint" under 28 U.S.C. 1332. Under 28 U.S.C. 1332, this court has diversity jurisdiction over certain civil actions between citizens of different states. 28 U.S.C. § 1332(a)(1). Plaintiff's complaint, however, alleges that "the citizens are of the same state." Further examination of Plaintiff's complaint indicates that Plaintiff and all defendants are citizens of California.
Accordingly, this court lacks jurisdiction over Plaintiff's complaint. Plaintiff's Motion for Preliminary and Permanent injunction is therefore DENIED. Plaintiff's complaint is DISMISSED for lack of jurisdiction.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
