UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
ALLSTATE INSURANCE COMPANY, et al.,
CASE NO. 1:17 CV 555
JUDGE JAMES S. GWIN
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
On March 17, 2017, plaintiff pro se Erica Witten, of Euclid, Ohio, filed this personal
injury action against defendants Allstate Insurance Company and Regina L. Kavaras.
Defendant Kavaras is identified as a resident of Wickliffe, Ohio. Plaintiff cites diversity of
citizenship as the basis for this court’s jurisdiction.
Without regard to the whether plaintiff states an otherwise valid claim for relief, it is
clear on the face of the complaint that there is not complete diversity of citizenship of the
parties. The court therefore lacks jurisdiction over this matter. See Caudill v. North America
Media Corp, 200 F.3d 914, 916 (6th Cir. 2000).
Accordingly, this action is dismissed without prejudice.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: March 21, 2017
