Honorable John Corbett O’Meara
AMERICAN RED CROSS, GREAT
LAKES BLOOD SERVICES REGION,
ORDER OF PARTIAL DISMISSAL
Plaintiff Kevin Everts filed a four-count complaint in this court alleging
violations of the following statutes: Count I, the Americans with Disabilities Act
("ADA"); Count II, Michigan's Persons with Disabilities Civil Rights Act
("PWDCRA"); Count III, retaliation under the ADA; and Court IV, retaliation under
Although the two counts arising under federal law are cognizable in this court
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1331, the allegations presented in Counts II and IV are based
solely on state law. The parties to this action are not diverse. Therefore, this court
declines to exercise supplemental jurisdiction over Plaintiff’s state law claims to avoid
jury confusion. See 28 U.S.C. § 1367(c); United Mine Workers v. Gibbs, 282 U.S.
715 (1966); Padilla v. City of Saginaw, 867 F. Supp. 1309 (E.D. Mich. 1994).
It is hereby ORDERED that Counts II and IV are DISMISSED.
