March 2, 2016 Opinion or Order Filing 17 Report And Recommendations re 5 Motion to Dismiss pursuant to FRCP 12(b)(1) filed by Guam Memorial Hospital Authority, Theodore Lewis, 7 Cross Motion for Summary Judgment filed by Tairin Atesom. The undersigned recommends the Chief Judge gran t the Defendants' Motion to Dismiss on the grounds that this court lacks subject matter jurisdiction over the action. The court lacks federal question jurisdiction because the Plaintiff has failed to meet her burden of showing that her claims &q uot;arise under" federal law. Second, the court lacks diversity jurisdiction because the parties are not citizens of different states and because the Plaintiff has failed to satisfy the jurisdictional amount requirement. Additionally, because t he court's finding that it lacks subject matter jurisdiction is dispositive, the court declines to address the arguments raised in the Defendants' motion and the Plaintiff's Cross Motion for Partial Summary Judgment. Without subject ma tter jurisdiction over the claims, the court has no authority to grant the relief sought by the Plaintiff. Thus, the undersigned recommends the Plaintiff's cross motion be dismissed as moot. Objections to R&R due by 3/16/2016. Signed by Magistrate Judge Joaquin V.E. Manibusan, Jr on 3/2/2016.
