See Mine Workers v. Gibbs, 383 U.S. 715, 725 (1966). Therefore plaintiff's claims for state law injunctive relief and for attorney fees under California Civil Code section 1021.5 are reinstated. Moreover, in the interests of justice plaintiff is granted leave to amend her Complaint to allege facts which would overcome the factual infirmities which led the Court to dismiss her federal claim for injunctive relief under Article III of the United States Constitution.
