NOTICE RE RECENT FILINGS
(DKT. NOS. 23, 24)
DEBORAH A. MATTHEWS,
No. C 12-03031 WHA
On September 17, 2012, an order issued remanding this action to the Superior Court of
Alameda County due to lack of federal subject-matter jurisdiction. On September 18, the Clerk
of the Court mailed certified copies of the remand order and docket entries to the Superior Court
of Alameda County.
The Court has since received several filings from pro se defendant Deborah Matthews
(Dkt. Nos. 20, 21, 23, 24). As explained in this Court’s prior notice, once a district court
certifies a remand order to state court, the district court is divested of jurisdiction and can take no
further action on the case. Seedman v. U.S. Dist. Court for Cent. Dist. of California, 837 F.2d
413, 414 (9th Cir. 1988). “A remand order returns the case to the state courts and the federal
court has no power to retrieve it.” Ibid.
Defendant should proceed in state court to litigate the merits of her case and is requested
to discontinue filing papers with this Court.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: November 6, 2012.
