September 15, 2015 12 Opinion or Order of the Court ORDER that the 10 Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge is ADOPTED with modification. It is ORDERED that, as set out in the well-reasoned Recommendation, Defendants' 3 Motion to Dismiss as to the federal-law claims is GRANTED. The Recommend ation further is ADOPTED as to the Magistrate Judge's recommendation that the court decline jurisdiction over the state-law claims pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1367(a)(3). Rather than dismiss the state-law claims without prejudice, however, the court will remand the state-claims to the Circuit Court of Dale County, Alabama. See Cook ex rel. Estate of Tessier v. Sheriff of Monroe Cnty., Fla., 402 F.3d 1092, 1123 (11th Cir. 2005) (Because this case was originally filed in state court and remo ved to federal court pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1441, if the district court declines to continue to exercise supplemental jurisdiction, [the] remaining claim[s] should be remanded to state court.). A separate final judgment will be entered. Signed by Chief Judge William Keith Watkins on 9/15/2015. (dmn, )
