UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
May 10, 2010
ADELAIDA RUBIO-MODICA, PLAINTIFF,
SALVATORE MODICA, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Johnson, Senior District Judge
ORDER REMANDING ACTION TO STATE COURT
Review of the record in the above-referenced action indicates that plaintiff Adelaida Rubio-Modica ("Plaintiff") filed the instant action on or about February 15, 2010 in New York State Supreme Court in the County of Queens. Plaintiff then removed the action to this district, citing both 28 U.S.C. § 1331 and 28 U.S.C. § 1332 as bases of jurisdiction. Noting that "[i]t is beyond peradventure of a doubt that the right of removal is vested exclusively in defendants," Magistrate Roanne L. Mann, on April 13, 2010, ordered Plaintiff to show cause why the action should not be remanded back to state court (the "Order"). (Dkt No. 2.) On April 16, 2010, Plaintiff responded to the Order, conceded the inapplicability of federal removal statutes, and moved the court to remand the action back to state court.
Accordingly, the Court hereby dismisses the action with prejudice.
Sterling Johnson, Jr. United States Senior District Judge
