My pro se federal civil case was removed from Florida state court. The district court through my case out with prejudice without a hearing.
I have sent notice of an appeal which the circuit court in Atlanta acknowledged receiving.
My question is, can I also bring up an issue of my belief that the case was improperly removed from Florida state to federal court to begin with?
I previously made a motion in federal district court to remand the case to Florida court on two grounds. One grounds was to do with federal civil rules Section 1446 (b) (1) and the other was to do with the $75 federal limit which I meant to stay under.
The district judge never made a reply to my motion to remand back to Florida court. He neither denied the motion nor granted it. He basically ignored it as far as I can tell.
Any way, is it proper to add in the remand motion issue at the same time I'm following up on my appeal of the dismissal with prejudice?
I filled my motion to remand to Florida state court just over a month ago.
