UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
June 18, 2012
MELANIE I. CORNELL,
THAT CERTAIN INSTRUMENT ENTITLED "DEED OF TRUST," UNDER RECORDER'S DOCUMENT NUMBER 20110015747 ORIGINALLY DATED AUGUST 8, 2005 AND FILED IN NEVADA COUNTY; THAT CERTAIN "CORPORATE ASSIGNMENT OF DEED OF TRUST," UNDER RECORDER'S DOCUMENT NUMBER 20110015748 DATED JUNE 14, 2011 AND FILED IN NEVADA COUNTY; THAT CERTAIN INSTRUMENT ENTITLED "DEED OF TRUST," UNDER RECORDER'S DOCUMENT NUMBER DOC-2005-0111849 ORIGINALLY DATED AUGUST 8, 2005 AND FILED IN PLACER COUNTY; NEW CENTURY MORTGAGE CORPORATION; U.S. BANK NATIONAL ASSOCIATION, ALLEGED TRUSTEE; CHICAGO TITLE INSURANCE COMPANY, DEFENDANTS.
The court has received plaintiff's notice of appeal of its May 21, 2012, Order granting defendants' motion to dismiss. (Docket No. 37.) "The filing of a notice of appeal is an event of jurisdictional significance -- it confers jurisdiction on the court of appeals and divests the district court of its control over those aspects of the case involved in the appeal." Griggs v. Provident Consumer Discount Co., 459 U.S. 56, 58 (1982). The purpose of this rule "is to promote judicial economy and avoid the confusion that would ensue from having the same issues before two courts simultaneously." Natural Res. Def. Council, Inc. v. Sw. Marine Inc., 242 F.3d 1163, 1166 (9th Cir. 2001).
Plaintiff's notice of appeal divests the court of jurisdiction over this action. Accordingly, the court will deny plaintiff's motion to stay the expiration of time to file a Second Amended Complaint, (Docket No. 38), without prejudice to her refiling the motion after the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has remanded the case to this court.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that plaintiff's motion to stay the expiration of time to file a Second Amended Complaint be, and the same hereby is, DENIED WITHOUT PREJUDICE.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED THAT all dates currently pending, including the Scheduling Conference on June 25, 2012, be, and the same hereby are, VACATED.
