Procedure - Removal of a State Court Action to the Federal Court System The removed case does not have to be repleaded in the federal district court Check to determine if any state court orders were made during the course of the proceeding. Be sure to notify all parties of the Notice of Removal to federal court. Notify the state court that you have removed the case to the federal Court system. A bond to cover costs incurred in this removal process is no longer necessary Serve a copy of the Notice of Removal with the federal clerk together with all pleadings and any state court orders that were filed in the State Court. Prepare the notice for removal While the state court requires a fact pleading, federal courts require only notice pleadings (pleadings which contain a brief statement of the facts to satisfy the state rules).
Include the jurisdiction of the federal law giving you the eligibility to file the action in the federal court system. Fees may be required. You should file your answer to the pleading or the Notice of Removal in the State Court before the 30-day Statute of Limitation has passed; otherwise, a default judgment may be made against the client. Be sure that each plaintiff is also notified. If so, you must advise the attorney so that he can determine whether or not seek federal court changes in the orders.
