McDonald v. Gurson et al
ORDER directing the clerk to file motions 4 7 9 under the new cause number C17-682RSL and directing the parties not to file anything else on the docket in this matter that is related to the removed action unless the court orders otherwise by Judge James L. Robart. (RS)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON
BRETT D. MCDONALD,
CASE NO. C17-0619JLR
BORA GURSON, et al.,
On May 2, 2017, the court issued an order in which it found that Plaintiff Brett D.
McDonald had improperly removed under this cause number a similarly captioned state
court action in which he is named as a defendant. (See 5/2/17 Order (Dkt. # 5); Not. of
Rem. (Dkt. # 3) at 1.) The court stated that Mr. McDonald should have removed the state
court action under a new cause number and paid the applicable filing fee for opening a
new case. (5/2/17 Order at 4.) Accordingly, the court directed the Clerk to open a new
cause number and file Mr. McDonald’s notice of removal in that case. (Id.) The court
also directed Mr. McDonald to pay the filing fee in that case within seven days. (Id.)
ORDER - 1
Both Mr. McDonald and Defendants Bora Gurson and RoxyCar, Inc., have since
filed under this cause number motions related to the state court case. (See Mot. to
Remand (Dkt. # 7).) Because the removed action is no longer pending under this cause
number, the court DIRECTS the Clerk to file those motions (Dkt. ## 4, 7, 9) under the
new cause number, No. C17-0682RSL, created for the action Mr. McDonald removed to
this court. The court further ORDERS the parties not to file anything else on the docket
in this matter that is related to the removed action unless the court orders otherwise.
Dated this 3rd day of May, 2017.
JAMES L. ROBART
United States District Judge
ORDER - 2
