ORDER Remanding Case to State Court. Signed by Judge M. James Lorenz on 9/7/2017. (CC: Certified Copy to State Court)(sjt)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
HOUSE OF LEBANON
ORDER REMANDING CASE TO
Case No.: 3:17-cv-00232-L-BGS
HOUSE OF PACIFIC RELATIONS
INTERNATIONAL COTTAGES. INC.,
Defendants removed to this court on the basis of federal question jurisdiction. The
basis of this jurisdiction was Plaintiff’s 42 U.S.C. § 1981 claim. Because the Court has
since dismissed the §1981 claim, no federal question remains. Considering the judicial
values of economy, convenience, fairness, and comity, the Court finds that state court is
the proper venue for this recently filed action. Accordingly, the Court exercises its
discretion under 28 U.S.C. § 1367 (c)(3) by declining to extend supplemental jurisdiction
over Plaintiff’s remaining claims. This action is hereby remanded to state court.
