IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
August 20, 2007
DONALD CANTERBERY, PLAINTIFF,
JOHN A. PETROVICH, M.D., ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, District Judge
The Court finds that the above-captioned case was previously filed in this Court under case number 06-cv-792-MJR-PMF. However, it was remanded to state court for lack of subject matter jurisdiction, namely diversity jurisdiction, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1332 (Case No. 06-cv-792-MJR-PMF, Doc. 21). Now, Defendants have again removed this case upon the basis of diversity jurisdiction and the case has been assigned case number 07-cv-584-DRH-PMF. As this is the same exact case and because it is policy within the Southern District for cases to remain with their previously-assigned judges, the Clerk is hereby DIRECTED TO REASSIGN this case to the Honorable Judge Reagan to serve as presiding Judge for the remainder of the proceedings. Accordingly, the new case number shall be 07-cv-584-MJR-PMF.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
David R Herndon United States District Judge
