The opinion of the court was delivered by: (judge Caputo)
In an April 11, 2012 Memorandum and Order, the Court directed the Plaintiffs to file an amended complaint properly alleging the existence of diversity jurisdiction. In their Amended Complaint, the Plaintiffs have failed to comply with this directive. Specifically, the Plaintiffs have made no attempt to properly allege the existence of diversity jurisdiction as to Defendant WPX Energy Appalachia, LLC.*fn1 See Manning v. WPX Energy Appalachia, LLC, 3:12-CV-646, 2012 WL 1205851 (M.D. Pa. Apr. 11, 2012). As such, the Plaintiffs will be given one further opportunity in which to file a second amended complaint. A failure to do so properly will result in the dismissal of this action.
An appropriate order follows.
A. Richard Caputo United States District Judge
