UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
September 20, 2010
SUSAN HANRATTY, PLAINTIFF,
GEORGE T. WATSON AND TS ACQUISITIONS, INC., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: J. Phil Gilbert District Judge
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter comes before the Court for case management purposes. In a September 2, 2010, order (Doc. 6), the Court noted a defect in defendant George T. Watson's jurisdictional allegations in the notice of removal. The Court gave Watson up to and including September 17, 2010, to amend the notice of removal to correct the jurisdictional defect. The Court further warned Watson that their failure to amend the faulty pleading could result in remand of this case for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. Watson failed to timely amend his notice of removal to correct the defect. The Court hereby ORDERS Watson to SHOW CAUSE on or before October 1, 2010, why the Court should not remand this case for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. The Court will construe a failure to respond in a timely manner as an admission that the Court does not have subject matter jurisdiction over this case and will remand this matter to state court.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
