Lisa Bredahl Not Present Deputy Clerk Court Reporter / Recorder Tape No. Attorneys Present for Plaintiffs: Attorneys Present for Defendants:
Proceedings: [IN CHAMBERS] ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE RE
DISMISSAL FOR LACK OF SUBJECT MATTER JURISDICTION
The 36-page verified complaint seeks to allege diversity jurisdiction. See 28 U.S.C. § 1332. However, the exercise of diversity jurisdiction would be improper for at least the reasons listed below:
1. The complaint does not allege the citizenship of named defendant California Reconveyance Company.
2. The complaint does not allege Plaintiffs' citizenship.
Accordingly, the Court orders Plaintiffs to show cause in writing within 14 days of the date of this order why this action should not be dismissed for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. Defendants may submit a response in the same time period. An amended complaint correcting the deficiencies will be deemed a sufficient response to this order to show cause.
