Thank you for your response.
I am afraid there is bad news. As plaintiff who chose where to file suit, all federal case law states the plaintiff is strictly forbidden no matter what reason from removing a case from state court to federal court. The reason behind this the courts all say is that the plaintiff had the choice of forum in the beginning and picked state court and he/she is stuck with that choice.
The only possible way to do this is you would have to try to voluntarily dismiss the case "without prejudice" and then you would have to file a brand new suit in federal court. Thus, if you can dismiss the case without prejudice (meaning you have the right to refile) and your statute of limitations
has not expired, then once you dismiss you would file your new suit in the US District court. If the court dismisses "with prejudice" then your case is over and cannot be refiled.
