I hope you got my tip for your first answer today. I will try to tip you for the answer about the notice of appeal after I send you this next question. I'm not too good at navigating all the places on this web site.
Section 1446 (b) (1) of U.S. code 28 refers.
"(1) The notice of removal of a civil action or proceeding shall be filed within 30 days after the receipt by the defendant, through service or otherwise, of a copy of the initial pleading setting forth the claim for relief upon which such action or proceeding is based, or within 30 days after the service of summons upon the defendant if such initial pleading has then been filed in court and is not required to be served on the defendant, whichever period is shorter."
I will try to tip you again in a minute. Thanks. Mean while there is another issue. I filed a motion to remand my case to Florida civil court about a month ago. The federal judge never answered that issue. Can I bring it up in the brief?
I will try to send you another tip in a minute. Thanks.
Mean while my next question is the district judge never responded to a motion I made a month ago. The motion was to remand the case back to Florid civil court.
In other words on appeal can I attack the direct issue that I feel the district courts dismissal itself with prejudice is not justified, and also raise a question that the federal court should have remanded the case to Florida court for two reasons. The district judge never replied yea or nay to my request to remand.
