Pro se plaintiff Adrian Adams sued the Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Department and Deputy Patrick Dimick (collectively "defendants") in Santa Cruz County Superior Court alleging civil rights 19 violations. After the state court sustained a demurrer on Adams's first amended complaint, he filed a 20 second amended complaint ("SAC"), which alleged federal claims for relief. Dkt. No. 1, Exh. F 21
(Order Sustaining Demurrer), Exh. H (SAC). Defendants timely removed the action to this court. 22 Dkt. No. 1. Defendants now move to dismiss the complaint for failure to state a claim upon which 23 relief can be granted. See FED. R. CIV. P. 12(b)(6). Dkt. No. 4.

The court so orders. 26
Plaintiff's SAC against the Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Department and Deputy Patrick Dimick is DISMISSED in its entirety with leave to amend. Plaintiff shall file an Amended 28
Complaint and serve it on defendants no later than 15 days from the date of this order.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
