1 2 3 4 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 5 NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 6 7 CROWD FUND INVESTMENT GROUP 8 LLC, Plaintiff, 9 10 JON LEWIS, et al., Defendants. 12 For the Northern District of California ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE v. 11 United States District Court Case No. 17-cv-02377-EMC 13 The above-referenced case is related to another case filed in this District, more specifically, 14 15 Crowd Fund Investment Group LLC v. Lewis, No. C-17-0803 (N.D. Cal.) (hereinafter Crowd 16 Fund I). Crowd Fund I was initially filed in state court but then was removed by one of the 17 defendants in the case, Karen I. Lewis. This Court adopted the report and recommendation of 18 Judge Ryu that Crowd Fund I be remanded – both for procedural defects in removal and for lack 19 of subject matter jurisdiction. The instant case is related to Crowd Fund I because it is the same state court action that 20 21 was removed in Crowd Fund I – the only difference being that now the removal was effected by a 22 different defendant, i.e., Jon Lewis. The Court has reviewed Mr. Lewis’s notice of removal and, 23 from what it can divine (the notice is far from a model of clarity), it sees no legal basis for the 24 removal, including for the reasons articulated by Judge Ryu in her report and recommendation for 25 Crowd Fund I. 26 /// 27 /// 28 /// Accordingly, the Court hereby orders Mr. Lewis to show cause as to why the instant action 1 2 should not be remanded to the superior court from which it was removed. Mr. Lewis shall have 3 two weeks from the date of the order below to file a response. If no response is filed by that 4 date, then the Clerk of the Court shall immediately remand the case and close the file for the 5 action. 6 7 IT IS SO ORDERED. 8 9 10 ______________________________________ EDWARD M. CHEN United States District Judge 12 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 11 Dated: May 2, 2017 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
