September 13, 2022 Opinion or Order Filing 15 ORDER denying as moot #3 Motion for New Trial; denying as moot #4 Motion for Nonsuit; denying as moot #5 Motion for Default; denying as moot #6 Motion for Leave to Proceed in forma pauperis; denying #7 Motion for TRO; denying as moot #9 Motion for Order. The federal Anti-Injunction Act provides that "[a] court of the United States may not grant an injunction to stay proceedings in a State court except as expressly authorized by Act of Congress, or where necessary in aid of its jurisdiction, or to protect or effectuate its judgments." 28 U.S.C. 2283. "The three excepted circumstances are (i) the express provisions of another act of Congress authorizing such an order; (ii) necessity in aid of the federal court's jurisdiction and (iii) the need to protect or effectuate the federal court's judgments." Standard Microsystems Corp. v. Texas Instruments Inc., 916 F.2d 58, 60 (2d Cir. 1990) (citing Atl. Coast Line R.R. Co. v. Bhd. of Locomotive Eng'rs, 398 U.S. 281, 28788 (1970)). These exceptions are narrowly construed. See Vendo Co. v. LektroVend Corp., 433 U.S. 623, 630 (1977); Mitchum v. Foster, 407 U.S. 225, 22829 (1972)."Courts in this Circuit have repeatedly held that the AntiInjunction Act bars a federal court from enjoining state-court eviction proceedings." Allen v. N.Y.C. Hous. Auth., No. 10-CV-168 (CM) (DCF), 2010 WL 1644956, at *3 (S.D.N.Y. Apr. 20, 2010); see also Markey v. Ditech Fin. LLC, No. 3:15-CV-1711 (MPS), 2016 WL 5339572, at *2 (D. Conn. Sept. 22, 2016) (denying preliminary injunctive relief on the basis of the Anti-Injunction Act where plaintiff sought "stay of... summary process [eviction] action"); Watkins v. Ceasar, 88 F. App'x 458, 459 (2d Cir. 2004) (summary order) (upholding denial of motion for preliminary "injunction, in which plaintiff sought to enjoin summary eviction proceedings brought by his landlords in the Civil Court of the City of New York" under the Anti-Injunction Act); Atl. Coast Line R. Co., 398 U.S. at 297 ("Any doubts as to the propriety of a federal injunction against state court proceedings should be resolved in favor of permitting the state courts to proceed in an orderly fashion to finally determine the controversy.").Here, the injunction sought by Ms. Sorrentino of state court eviction proceedings is barred by the Anti-Injunction Act, as it does not fall within the three exceptions to the Anti-Injunction Act. Accordingly, the Court DENIES Plaintiff's motion for temporary restraining order. In light of the above, the Court lacks subject matter jurisdiction to hear this state court matter and, therefore, sua sponte remands the case to the Connecticut Superior Court, Judicial District of Bridgeport. See Caterpillar Inc. v. Williams, 482 U.S. 386, 392 (1987) ("Only state-court actions that originally could have been filed in federal court may be removed to federal court by the defendant."). The remaining pending motions are DENIED as moot.The Clerk of Court is respectfully directed to close this case.Signed by Judge Victor A. Bolden on 9/13/2022. (Bartlett, H.)
