Ramsey et al v. Desoto Gathering Company LLC et al
ORDER directing the Clerk of the Court to forthwith REMAND this case to the Circuit Court of Faulkner County, Arkansas, as federal jurisdiction no longer exists over this case. Signed by Judge Billy Roy Wilson on 2/12/2015. (ljb)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
WILLIAM E. SMITH, et al.
DESOTO GATHERING COMPANY, LLC, et al.
Defendants removed this action, asserting federal jurisdiction under the Class Action
Fairness Act.1 The class-action portions of this case were severed in an order entered earlier
today.2 Plaintiffs are all Arkansas residents, and Defendants are all Arkansas citizens for
jurisdictional purposes (or were when the case was removed).3 Accordingly, federal jurisdiction
no longer exists over this case and the Clerk of the Court is directed to forthwith REMAND this
case to the Circuit Court of Faulkner County, Arkansas.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 12th day of February, 2015.
/s/ Billy Roy Wilson
UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
