HOUSE OF PACIFIC RELATIONS INTERNATIONAL COTTAGES. INC., et al., Defendants. 15 16 17 Defendants removed to this court on the basis of federal question jurisdiction. The 18 basis of this jurisdiction was Plaintiff’s 42 U.S.C. § 1981 claim. Because the Court has 19 since dismissed the §1981 claim, no federal question remains. Considering the judicial 20 values of economy, convenience, fairness, and comity, the Court finds that state court is 21 the proper venue for this recently filed action. Accordingly, the Court exercises its 22 discretion under 28 U.S.C. § 1367 (c)(3) by declining to extend supplemental jurisdiction 23 over Plaintiff’s remaining claims. This action is hereby remanded to state court. 24 Dated: September 7, 2017 25 26 27 28 1 3:17-cv-00232-L-BGS
