Proceedings: (IN CHAMBERS) ORDER RE REMAND TO STATE COURT
On December 14, 2011, Defendant removed this action from state court, claiming subject matter jurisdiction based on 28 U.S.C. § 1332, otherwise known as diversity jurisdiction. Removal must take place within 30 days after the receipt of a removable pleading. 28 U.S.C. § 1446(b)(1). Defendant's agent for service of process was served on October 19, 2011. (Notice of Removal ¶ 2; Holly Decl. ¶ 3.) It appears that Defendant's December 14 removal was untimely, and Defendant does not contend otherwise in its Notice of Removal.
Defendant is ordered to show cause in writing by January 3, 2012 why this case should not be remanded for untimely removal. If Plaintiff objects to removal, she must file a notice of the objection within 30 days of the notice of removal being filed. 28 U.S.C. § 1447(c).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
