Date Filed Document Text
May 30, 2013 Opinion or Order Filing 74 ORDER AND OPINION re: 60 MOTION to Remand (Corrected) Notice of Motion to Abstain., 55 MOTION to Remand to State Court and Abstain under 28 USC 1334(c)(1) and (2). Following District Judge Barbara Joness dismissal of a related matter (Fried I), Plaintiffs filed this action in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, pleading various federal and state law claims against Defendants arising from failed investments with Defendant Lehman Brothers Real Estate Associates III. On June 17, 2011, Defendants removed the lawsuit to this Court, and on June 24, 2011, moved to stay this action pending the outcome of Plaintiffs appeal of Fried I. On July 15, 2011, Plaintiffs moved the Court to remand for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. On Janu ary 25, 2012, Judge Jones denied the motion to remand, and entered a stay pending the Second Circuits decision in Fried I. (Dkt. No. 27). On December 20, 2012, theSecond Circuit summarily affirmed the dismissal of Fried I. Fried v. Lehman Bros. Real Estate Assocs. III, L.P., 2012 WL 6621300 (2d Cir. Dec. 20, 2012). Plaintiffs now renew their motion to remand, or in the alternative, move the Court to abstain from hearing the case. Plaintiffs argue that two intervening changes have divested this C ourt of subject matter jurisdiction: (1) the Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings of Lehman Brothers Holdings, Inc. (LHI) is now in the post-confirmation stage, allegedly removing related to jurisdiction over this case, and (2) Plaintiffs amended their Complaint on February 28, 2013, removing any federal statutory claims and references to federal statutes that might give this Court federal question jurisdiction. For the reasons set forth above, Plaintiffs motion to dismiss for lack of subject matte r jurisdiction is DENIED, and Plaintiffs motion that the court abstain from exercising jurisdiction is GRANTED. The Clerk of the Court is directed to terminate the motions at docket numbers 55 and 60 and mark the case closed. SO ORDERED. (Signed by Judge Lorna G. Schofield on 5/30/2013) (rsh)
