ORDER REMANDING CASE

The Plaintiff commenced this action in the Routt County District Court. This action
arises out of Plaintiff’s claims for breach of contract, negligent misrepresentations, and
promissory estoppel. In his Complaint, the Plaintiff did not request any particular monetary
In the Notice of Removal, the Defendants assert that this Court can exercise jurisdiction
based upon diversity pursuant to 28 U.S.C.§ 1332. The Defendants rely primarily upon the
Plaintiff’s election in the mandatory Colorado Civil Cover Sheet stating: “This party is seeking a
monetary judgment for more than $100,000 against another party, including any attorney fees,
penalties or punitive damages, but excluding interest and costs[.]”
In accordance with the analysis set forth in Baker v. Sears Holding Corp., 557 F. Supp.
2d 1208 (D. Colo. 2007), there has been an insufficient showing of the requisite amount in
controversy to establish diversity jurisdiction. Accordingly, the action must be remanded to the
State Court. See 28 U.S.C. § 1447(c).
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that this action is REMANDED to the Routt County
DATED this 8th day of January, 2015.
BY THE COURT:
Marcia S. Krieger
Chief United States District Judge
