Bartolini v. Pajco, Inc.
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER: IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this action is DISMISSED without prejudice. An Order of Dismissal will be filed separately. Signed by District Judge Stephen N. Limbaugh, Jr on 8/27/14. (CSG)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI
PABLO D. BARTOLINI,
No. 1:14CV99 SNLJ
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter is before the Court on its own motion. Rule 12(h)(3) of the Federal Rules of
Civil Procedure states: “If the court determines at any time that it lacks subject-matter
jurisdiction, the court must dismiss the action.” The Court has reviewed the complaint and has
determined that it should be dismissed for lack of jurisdiction.
“Federal courts are courts of limited jurisdiction. The requirement that jurisdiction be
established as a threshold matter springs from the nature and limits of the judicial power of the
United States and is inflexible and without exception.” Kessler v. Nat’l Enterprises, Inc., 347
F.3d 1076, 1081 (8th Cir. 2003) (quotation marks omitted).
Plaintiff brings this lawsuit against Pajco, Inc., his former employer, alleging that he
worked ten hour night shifts and that he was never allowed to take a meal break. Plaintiff alleges
that he suffered injuries from standing during his shifts without eating. Plaintiff has not specified
any federal statute or any other basis for the Court’s jurisdiction over his claim.
The Court previously ordered plaintiff to show cause why this action should not be
dismissed for lack of jurisdiction. Plaintiff did not respond to the Court’s Order.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this action is DISMISSED without prejudice.
An Order of Dismissal will be filed separately.
Dated this 27th day of August, 2014.
STEPHEN N. LIMBAUGH, JR.
