Civil Case No. 20-12513 Honorable Linda V. Parker RED EFFECT INTERNATIONAL FRANCHISE, LLC, RED EFFECT HOLDINGS, LLC, RED EFFECT LA COUNTY, LLC, RED EFFECT ORANGE COUNTY, LLC, ALLIE MALLAD, CARLOS GUZMAN, ERICA MALLAD, ROBERT VENDITTELLI, and, CHELSIE BENDER, Defendants. ______________________________________/ OPINION AND ORDER DISMISSING AMENDED COMPLAINT WITHOUT PREJUDICE FOR LACK OF DIVERSITY JURISDICTION On January 29, 2021, this Court issued an order requiring Plaintiffs to show cause as to why this matter should not be dismissed for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. (ECF No. 26.) While Plaintiffs alleged upon information and belief in their pleadings that the parties are diverse for purposes of 28 U.S.C. § 1332 (see, e.g., Compl. ¶ 13, ECF No. 1 at Pg ID 3), a statement of jurisdiction filed by Defendants at the Court’s request reflects that diversity is lacking (ECF No. 25). In response to the show cause order, Plaintiffs concede that the parties are not Case 2:20-cv-12513-LVP-RSW ECF No. 28, PageID.2343 Filed 02/16/21 Page 2 of 2 diverse and that the Court therefore lacks subject matter jurisdiction over their Complaint. (ECF No. 27.) Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED, ADJUDGED, AND DECREED that Plaintiffs’ Amended Complaint is DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE and this matter is CLOSED. IT IS SO ORDERED. s/ Linda V. Parker LINDA V. PARKER U.S. DISTRICT JUDGE Dated: February 16, 2021
