Proceedings: ORDER REMANDING ACTION TO THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY SUPERIOR COURT (IN CHAMBERS)
Plaintiff commenced an unlawful detainer action in the Los Angeles County Superior Court December 17, 2010. (Notice of Removal, Ex. C.) Thereafter, Defendant removed the action to this Court on January 13, 2012. See U.S. Bank National Ass'n v. Liana Munden et al., 2:12-cv-00340-JHN-AJW ("Munden I"). On January 23, 2012, the Court sua sponte remanded the case to the state court for lack of federal question and diversity jurisdiction. (Munden I, Docket No. 3.) On March 9, 2012, Defendant again removed the action to this Court. (Docket No. 1.) For the reasons discussed in the Court's remand order in Munden I, the Court lacks subject matter jurisdiction over this action.
Accordingly, the Court REMANDS this case to the Los Angeles County Superior Court. As the Court explained in its prior order, the Court does not have jurisdiction to hear this case. The Court admonishes Defendant that further removal of the same unlawful detainer action may result in the imposition of monetary sanctions.*fn1
