Brooks v. South Carolina Dept of Corrections et al
ORDER denying 53 Motion to Remand. Signed by Honorable Patrick Michael Duffy on December 21, 2016.(jmcg, )
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF SOUTH CAROLINA
Sgt. Davenport, Captain Pack, Lt. Carter,
Ofc. Johnson, Major S. Sutton, Ofc. Cox, )
Ofc. Ledwell, Jane Doe, Director John Doe, )
and Warden Stevenson,
C.A. No.: 9:15-cv-3107-PMD-BM
This matter is before the Court on Plaintiff’s self-styled “Notice of Removal.” Construed
liberally, Plaintiff’s pro se filing seeks a remand of his state-law claims to the Richland County
Court of Common Pleas. Defendants object, correctly noting that the Court dismissed all of
Plaintiff’s claims in its October 27, 2016 Order, not just his federal claims. As a result, Plaintiff
has no claims left to remand from this Court, and his motion must be denied. The Court stresses,
however, that its dismissal of Plaintiff’s state-law claims does not preclude him from filing a
separate action in state court alleging those same claims.
For the foregoing reasons, it is ORDERED that Plaintiff’s motion is DENIED.
AND IT IS SO ORDERED.
