UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
CENTRAL DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
AKA: FANNIE MAE
Case No. EDCV13-0998-UA (DUTY)
ORDER SUMMARILY REMANDING
MARIA M. PALADIN AND
The Court will remand this unlawful detainer action to state court summarily
because it has been removed improperly.
On June 3, 2013, defendant Maria M. Paladin, lodged a Notice of Removal,
seeking removal of what appears to be a routine unlawful detainer action in California
state court, to this Court and also presented an application to proceed in forma
pauperis. The Court has denied the latter application under separate cover because
26 the action was not properly removed. To prevent the action from remaining in
27 jurisdictional limbo, the Court issues this Order to remand the action to state court.
Simply stated, plaintiff could not have brought this action in federal court in
the first place, in that Paladin does not competently allege facts supplying either
2 diversity or federal-question jurisdiction, and therefore removal is improper. 28
3 U.S.C. § 1441(a); see Exxon Mobil Corp v. Allapattah Svcs., Inc., 545 U.S. 546,563,
125 S. Ct. 2611, 162 L. Ed. 2d 502 (2005). Even if complete diversity of citizenship
5 exists, the amount in controversy does not exceed the diversity-jurisdiction threshold
6 of $75,000. See 28 U.S.C. § § 1332, 1441(b). On the contrary, the unlawful-detainer
7 complaint recites that the amount in controversy does not exceed $10,000.
Nor does plaintiff’s unlawful detainer action raise any federal legal question.
See 28 U.S.C. §§ 1331, 1441(b).
Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that (1) this matter be REMANDED to the
Superior Court of Moreno Valley, Riverside County, 13800 Heacock Street, Moreno
12 Valley, CA 92557, for lack of subject matter jurisdiction pursuant to 28 U.S.C.
§ 1447(c); (2) that the Clerk send a certified copy of this Order to the state court; and
(3) that the Clerk serve copies of this Order on the parties.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
