Young v. Wal-Mart Stores

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS


August 21, 2009

LOUIS YOUNG, PLAINTIFF,
v.
WAL-MART STORES, INC., DEFENDANT.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge

ORDER

Pending before the Court is Young's July 17, 2009 motion to remand (Doc. 4). Specifically, Plaintiff moves the Court to remand this case arguing that there is no diversity jurisdiction as the amount in controversy is less than $75,000. As of this date Wal-Mart has not responded to the motion.*fn1 Thus, the Court considers this failure to respond as an admission of the merits of the motion. Accordingly, the Court GRANTS the motion to remand (Doc. 4). Because this Court lacks subject matter jurisdiction over Young's case, the Court REMANDS this matter to the Circuit Court of Madison County, Illinois.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
