UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT CENTRAL DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA MEMORANDUM Case No. Title Date CV 16-8120 DSF (PLAx) 1/12/17 Patricio de la Paz v. Ashok Kumar Jayaraman Present: The Honorable DALE S. FISCHER, United States District Judge Debra Plato Deputy Clerk Not Present Court Reporter Attorneys Present for Plaintiffs: Attorneys Present for Defendants: Not Present Not Present Proceedings: (In Chambers) Order DENYING Motion to Remand (Dkt. No. 11)1 Plaintiff’s motion to remand is DENIED. While the notice of removal contains a technical deficiency – “residency” rather than “citizenship” is alleged – there is no dispute that Plaintiff is a citizen of California and Defendant is a citizen of a foreign state not admitted for permanent residency. See 28 U.S.C. § 1332(a)(2). Therefore, the court has diversity jurisdiction. IT IS SO ORDERED. 1 The Court deems this matter appropriate for decision without oral argument. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 78; Local Rule 7-15. The hearing set for January 23, 2017 is removed from the Court’s calendar. CV-90 (12/02) MEMORANDUM Page 1 of 1
