Judge Joseph L. Tauro: ORDER entered. This court hereby orders that this case is dismissed for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. A federal district court lacking subject matter jurisdiction has a duty to dismiss the case sua sponte.1 This court c an find no basis for federal subject matter jurisdiction in the Complaint 1 or in Plaintiffs' Response 37 , 38 to this court's Order to Show Cause 34 . The citizenship of the parties is not completely diverse, and Plaintiffs bring no c laims under federal law. Rather,Plaintiffs bring eight claims under Massachusetts statutory and tort law. Because this court does not have original jurisdiction over any claims in the Complaint, this court may not exercise supplemental jurisdiction over the state law claims. Accordingly, this case must be dismissed. THIS CASE IS CLOSED. IT IS SO ORDERED.(Geraldino-Karasek, Clarilde)
