STIPULATION AND ORDER OF REMAND
ROBERT S. LASNIK, District Judge.
On November 8, 2013, Defendants filed a Notice of Removal in this action [Dkt. #1] based on Plaintiff's Amended Complaint for Monetary Damages and Injunctive Relief for Violation of the Law Against Discrimination (RCW Chapt. 49.60), Violation of the First Amendment of the Unites States Constitution, Defamation, Breach of Contract and Negligent Supervision and Negligent Retention , which included claims against Defendants alleging violations of Plaintiff's rights under the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the United State Constitution, and therefore raised questions of Federal law. See, Dkt. #2, pp. 34-50.
On November 26, 2013, Plaintiff filed a Second Amended Complaint, which no longer alleges any Federal claims against Defendants. See, Dkt. #9. Therefore, the parties stipulate that the matter should be remanded to King County Superior Court for further proceedings under Cause No. 13-2-35011-4SEA.
Based on the foregoing, and finding no questions of Federal law remaining in this action, the court hereby orders the matter of Kathleen Stine v. University of Washington, et. al. remanded to King County Superior Court for further proceedings under state law.
