v.
ServiCom, LLC Defendant.

          ORDER

          Philip G. Reinhard Judge

         For the reasons stated below, defendant's motion [27] for summary judgment is granted. Judgment is entered in favor of defendant and against plaintiff. Plaintiff's motion for summary judgment [37] is stricken. This case is terminated.

         STATEMENT-OPINION

         Plaintiff, Emma Wiggins, pro se, brought this action against defendant, Servicom, LLC, her former employer in the Circuit Court for the 17th Judicial Circuit, Winnebago County, Illinois. Defendant removed to this court based on federal question jurisdiction. 28 U.S.C. § 1331 and moves for summary judgment [27].

Thus, she has not offered any facts or offered any legal argument to support any claim, on any theory, against defendant.
