ORDER REMANDING CASE by Judge Vince Chhabria. Signed on 2/9/2018. (vclc1S, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 2/9/2018)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
SURAJ KUMAR RAJWANI,
Case No. 17-cv-06848-VC
ORDER REMANDING CASE
Re: Dkt. No. 13
B52 MEDIA LLC, et al.,
The plaintiff's motion to remand is granted. Although it is possible that the plaintiff may
have engaged in unreasonable litigation tactics in state court, the defendants have not shown that
the plaintiff's actions constituted bad faith. See Heller v. Am. States Ins. Co., No. CV 15-9771
DMG (JPRx), 2016 WL 1170891, at *2-3 (C.D. Cal. Mar. 25, 2016). Moreover, the defendants
have not shown that they acted diligently in determining whether this case was removable on the
basis of diversity jurisdiction within the one-year time frame set forth in the removal statute. 28
U.S.C. § 1446(c)(1); see Johnson v. Am. Online, Inc., 280 F. Supp. 2d 1018, 1027 (N.D. Cal.
Therefore, the case is remanded to San Francisco County Superior Court.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
