This case was initially filed in the 58th Judicial District Court, Jefferson County, TX, A-207805, and was removed to federal court by the Defendant.
This was a diversity of citizenship case over which the federal district court had jurisdiction because there is complete diversity of citizenship between the parties and at least $75,000 in damages being claimed and either the plaintiff or the defendant did not wish to litigate the case in the state courts of this state.

Any outstanding motions are conditionally denied as moot pending final settlement papers. This court retains jurisdiction to enforce the settlement. Signed by District Judge Marcia A. Crone on 9/27/21. (kcv, ) (Entered: 09/28/2021)
