IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
United States District Court
For the Northern District of California
No. C 10-03381 CRB
LUCKY DOGS LLC, et al.,
ORDER GRANTING MOTION TO
DISMISS AND DISMISSING COUNT
CITY OF SANTA ROSA, et al.,
Count Five of Plaintiffs’ First Amended Complaint asks the Court to declare whether
the City of Napa or the City of Santa Rosa is owed business tax on the two apartments at
issue in this case. See dkt. 26 ¶¶ 35-47. As the Court held from the bench at the motion
hearing today, the Court lacks jurisdiction to make such a determination under the Tax
Injunction Act, 28 U.S.C. § 1341. Accordingly, the City of Napa’s Motion to Dismiss, dkt.
33, is GRANTED. For the same reason, Count Five is DISMISSED as to the remaining
defendant, the City of Santa Rosa. This disposition is made without prejudice to Plaintiffs
raising such a claim in the appropriate state forum.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: September 9, 2011
