UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN SOUTHERN DIVISION ROBIN LANGER, Plaintiff, v. Hon. John Corbett O'Meara WELTMAN, WEINBERG & REIS, CO., LPA, and SASHA MELENDEZ, Defendants. __________________________________/ ORDER OF PARTIAL DISMISSAL On December 24, 2008, Plaintiff filed a complaint alleging violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act as well as invasion of privacy. Plaintiff does not allege that diversity jurisdiction exists. Although Plaintiff's federal cause of action 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 Plaintiff's 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 Plaintiff's state law invasion of privacy claim is DISMISSED. s/John Corbett O'Meara United States District Judge Date: February 2, 2009 Case No. 08-15268 I hereby certify that a copy of the foregoing document was served upon the parties of record on this date, February 2, 2009, by electronic and/or ordinary mail. s/William Barkholz Case Manager
