UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
MIDDLE DISTRICT OF FLORIDA
Case No: 8:21-cv-347-T-KKM-AAS
Plaintiff Carmen Maysonet moves to remand her retaliation claim under Florida
Workers’ Compensation Law (Section 440.205, Florida Statutes). (Doc. 5). Defendant
Mastronardi Produce does not oppose Maysonet’s motion. (Id. at 5).
A civil action arising under a state’s workers’ compensation laws may not be
removed to federal court. 28 U.S.C. § 1445(c). As a result, this Court must remand
Plaintiff’s retaliation claim brought under Florida Workers’ Compensation Law. See Reed
v. Heil Co., 206 F.3d 1055, 1061 (11th Cir. 200); see also Alansari v. Tropic Star Seafood Inc.,
388 F. App’x 902, 905–6 (11th Cir. 2010). Because this Court lacks subject-matter
jurisdiction over Maysonet’s retaliation claim alleged in Count I of her removed
complaint, the following is ORDERED:
