Oasis Legal Finance, LLC v. James Marquez and Kennedy Dixon, et al.

In Oasis Legal Finance, LLC v. James Marquez and Kennedy Dixon, et al., No. 17-90024-Q, (11th Cir. July 26, 2018), the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals denied without opinion the defendant’s petition for permission to appeal an order entered by the United States District Court for the Southern District of Alabama remanding this class action case to the Mobile County Circuit Court. The district court found that 28 U.S.C. § 1445(c) rendered this case non-removable despite a claim of federal subject matter jurisdiction under the Class Action Fairness Act, 28 U.S.C. § 1332(d)(2). In their response to Oasis’s Petition, plaintiffs argued that the questions Oasis presented to the Eleventh Circuit did not present an unsettled CAFA-related question likely to arise in future cases, as is required to obtain appellate review of a remand order involving a class action case.
