Proceedings: ORDER REMANDING MATTER TO LOS ANGELES COUNTY SUPERIOR COURT (In Chambers)
On March 2, 2012, this Court issued an Order to Show Cause as to why this matter should not be remanded to the Los Angeles County Superior Court for lack of jurisdiction. (Docket no. 58.) The Court ordered Defendants BNC Mortgage, Inc. and Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. to submit responses to the OSC no later than March 12, 2012 demonstrating that there is complete diversity. (Id. at 1.) That date has long since passed, and Defendants have failed to submit responses.
The Court's construes Defendants' failure to respond as consent to remand of this matter. Therefore, the matter is hereby REMANDED to the Los Angeles Superior Court because this Court lacks subject matter jurisdiction. See Diaz v. Davis (In re Digimarc Corp. Derivative Litig.), 549 F.3d 1223, 1234 (9th Cir. 2008) (for a Court to have diversity jurisdiction, there must be "complete diversity between the parties-each defendant must be a citizen of a different state from each plaintiff.").*fn1
IT IS SO ORDERED.
