Proceedings (In Chambers): ORDER REMANDING THE CASE TO STATE COURT
On August 18, 2011, Plaintiff, Arun Prem, a California resident, filed his Second Amended Complaint. (Dkt. No. 32.) The Second Amended Complaint alleges only state law claims and complete diversity between the parties does not exist depriving the Court of its original jurisdiction in this case. See 28 U.S.C. §§ 1331, 1332. Accordingly, no original jurisdiction exists, and the Court declines to exercise supplemental jurisdiction over Plaintiff's state law claims pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1367(c)(3). See Ove v. Gwinn, 264 F.3d 817, 826 (9th Cir. 2001); San Pedro Hotel Co. v. City of L.A., 159 F.3d 470, 478 (9th Cir. 1998). As such, the hearing scheduled for October 24, 2011 is VACATED, and the case is REMANDED to the Los Angeles County Superior Court. The Clerk of Court shall close this case.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
