Hatley, et al v. Bowden, et al
ORDER granting 23 Joint Motion to Remand - Signed by District Judge Louise Wood Flanagan on 05/09/2014. (Baker, C.)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF NORTH CAROLINA
Case No. 5:13-CV-765
ANIKA HATLEY and
OFFICER BOWDEN, in her Individual and
Official Capacities and the CITY OF RALEIGH
On May 8, 2014, the Plaintiffs and the City of Raleigh, the parties who have appeared in
this action, filed a joint motion to remand. The claim was originally removed to this Court based
on federal questions raised by the complaint. The amended complaint filed by the Plaintiffs
removed all federal claim and only State law negligence claims remain in the case. Although
remand is not mandatory, the case is at an early stage, federal claims no longer predominate, no
scheduling order has been entered, and discovery has not yet begun. Remand is appropriate here.
It is, therefore, ORDERED that this case in its entirety is remanded to the Superior Court
of Wake County, North Carolina.
This the _________ day of ________________, 2014.
