CHRISTINA A. SNYDER, J.
CIVIL MINUTES - GENERAL
Proceedings: (In Chambers) PLAINTIFF'S MOTION TO REMAND (Dkt. No. 20, filed January 21, 2015)
The Court finds this motion appropriate for decision without oral argument. See Fed.R.Civ.P. 78; Local Rule 7-15. Accordingly, the hearing date of February 23, 2015, is vacated, and the matter is hereby taken under submission.
On October 27, 2014, plaintiff Christine Umholtz filed the instant action in Ventura County Superior Court against defendants Bank of America, N.A. (" Bank of America"), Nationstar Mortgage LLC (" Nationstar"), ReconTrust Company, N.A. (" ReconTrust"), and Does 1 through 20. On December 1, 2014, Bank of America and ReconTrust removed the action to federal court on the basis of diversity jurisdiction. Dkt. No. 1.
On January 21, 2015, plaintiff filed a First Amended Complaint adding the Wolf Firm, a Law Corporation, as an additional defendant. Dkt. No. 19. That same day, plaintiff filed a motion to remand this action to the Superior Court. Dkt. No. 20. On February 5, 2015, Bank of America and ReconTrust filed a notice of non-opposition to the motion to remand. Dkt. No. 24. That notice " represent[s] . . . that in light of Plaintiff's First Amended Complaint, Defendants will not, and do not, oppose Plaintiff's Motion to Remand." Id. at 1-2.
Because it is unopposed, the Court GRANTS plaintiff's motion to remand. This action is hereby REMANDED to Ventura County Superior Court.
IT IS SO ...
