THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE MIDDLE DIS'rRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA
WELLS FARGO BANK N.A.,
AND NOW, THIS 27TH DAY OF FEBRUARY, 2017, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED
1. This matter is DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. 1
2. The Clerk of Court is directed to CLOSE the above-captioned action.
1 On February 14, 2017, Plaintiff filed a "Notice of Removal" on this docket in regard to an
ejectment action Wells Fargo has brought against Plaintiff in state court. (Doc. 18). This action, however,
is not properly before this Court. To properly remove the state court action, Plaintiff was required to initiate
a new federal civil action, not merely file a notice of removal on the docket of an already pending federal
action. 28 U.S.C. § 1446. Consequently, this notice of removal did not function to remove the state court
action, and that matter, therefore, remains pending in the Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas.
