1 2 3 4 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 5 NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 6 7 MATTHEW MORRIS, 8 Plaintiff, v. 9 United States District Court Northern District of California 10 Case No. 23-cv-04562-HSG ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE Re: Dkt. No. 46 11 BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY, et al., 12 Defendants. 13 Given that it declines to exercise supplemental jurisdiction over Plaintiff’s state claims, the 14 15 Court ORDERS Defendants to show cause why the case should not be remanded in light of 16 Plaintiff’s Amended Complaint, which proceeds only against non-federal defendants and asserts 17 only state law causes of action. 1 See Dkt. No. 46. Defendants must file their response (no more 18 than five pages in length) by May 23, 2024. Defendants’ deadline to answer or oppose Plaintiff’s 19 Amended Complaint is STAYED until further notice. IT IS SO ORDERED. 20 21 Dated: May 9, 2024 ______________________________________ HAYWOOD S. GILLIAM, JR. United States District Judge 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 1 While the Amended Complaint’s Eighteenth Cause of Action, for “improper disclosure of health/medical information,” references “Civ. Code § 56.20, HIPAA,” the Court does not construe the reference to “HIPAA” as an assertion of a federal law violation, as it previously dismissed any federal HIPAA claim with prejudice. It instead understands Plaintiff to sue under California state provisions that, like HIPAA, limit disclosure of patients’ health information.
