July 17, 2013 8 Featured Case Memorandum Opinion and Order: To summarize, the court is convinced that there is no legitimate dispute in this action over ownership to the property, only plaintiffs' efforts to extend the time they,can stay on the property following the forec losure of their property. No information has been provided to the court that would enable the court to place a value on the interest plaintiffs seek to protect by this action. Thus, Removing Defendants have not shown by a preponderance of the eviden ce that the amount in controversy in this action exceeds $75,000, exclusive of interest and costs. Consequently, the court lacks subject matter jurisdiction over the action, and it should be remanded to the state court from which it was removed. The court ORDERS that this action be, and is hereby, remanded to the state court from which it was removed. (Ordered by Judge John McBryde on 7/17/2013) (mdf)
