Hon. John Corbett O'Meara JOHN FOOTE, Defendant, _______________________________/ ORDER OF PARTIAL DISMISSAL On February 7, 2006, Plaintiffs filed a two-count complaint alleging violations of the Fair Housing Act (Count I) and the Michigan Persons with Disabilities Civil Rights Act (Count II). Plaintiffs do not allege that diversity jurisdiction exists. Although Count I is cognizable in this court pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1331, the remaining allegations present a claim based on state law. This court declines to exercise supplemental jurisdiction over Plaintiffs' state law claim so as to avoid jury confusion. See 28 U.S.C. 1367(c); United Mine Workers v. Gibbs, 383 U.S. 715 (1966); Padilla v. City of Saginaw, 867 F. Supp. 1309 (E.D. Mich. 1994). Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Count II of Plaintiffs' Complaint is DISMISSED.
