Attorneys Present for Defendants:
(In Chambers) Order Remanding action; Plaintiff’s Motion to Remand (Dkt. No.
On March 7, 2013, we required Defendants to show cause why this action should not be
remanded for lack of subject matter jurisdiction, given that this appears to be an improperly removed
unlawful detainer action. On March 18, 2013, Defendants timely responded to our OSC. Defendants’
response appears to reattach their Notice of Removal and reasserts that Defendants “rebut the
presumption that this is a non-judicial foreclosure issue” and that Plaintiff has engaged in, inter alia,
fraud and violated their due process rigths. (Response 1-3). As we explained in our March 7, 2013
OSC, however, even if these arguments raise a federal question, federal jurisdiction cannot rest upon an
actual or anticipated defense or counterclaim under the well-pleaded complaint rule. California ex rel.
Lockyer v. Dynegy, Inc., 375 F.3d 831, 838 (9th Cir. 2004); Vaden v. Discover Bank, 556 U.S. 49, 60
Based on the foregoing, we conclude that we lack subject matter jurisdiction over this matter.
We hereby REMAND this action to the state court from which it was removed. Plaintiff’s Motion to
Remand is DENIED as moot.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
