Memorandum Opinion and Order: Plaintiffs' motion to remand (Doc. No. 7) is denied, plaintiffs' breach of contract and tortious interference with contract claims are dismissed, and plaintiffs are afforded fourteen (14) days to file a motion for leave to amend their complaint, along with a proposed amended complaint. Defendants' motion to dismiss (Doc. No. 8), premised on the theory that plaintiffs' claims were not preempted, is denied as moot.

Opinion and Order: Plaintiffs' motion for reconsideration (Doc. No. 15) is denied, plaintiffs' motion for an extension of time in which to amend the complaint (Doc. No. 17) is granted, and plaintiffs' motion to certify (Doc. No. 16) is denied as moot. Plaintiffs shall have leave until October 2, 2014, to file an amended complaint that asserts a common law fraud claim that is fully compliant with the requirements set forth in this Opinion and Order. Should plaintiffs timely file such an amended pleading, the Court shall remand this matter to the state court. Should plaintiffs fail to file an amended pleading that relieves this Court of subject matter jurisdiction, the Court shall dismiss the complaint as preempted under Section 301 of the LRMA. (Related Doc # 18). Judge Sara Lioi on 9/25/2014. (P,J)

Order: On January 31, 2014, the Court entered a Memorandum Opinion and Order denying plaintiffs' motion to remand this action to state court. (Doc. No. 14). Plaintiffs sought reconsideration and also sought leave to amend their complaint to include a fraud claim. The Court denied reconsideration but ruled that plaintiffs' proposed fraud claim was not preempted by federal law. (Doc. No. 25.) The Court afforded plaintiffs leave to amend their complaint to assert a fraud claim and remove all preempted claims. Plaintiffs have filed a fully compliant amended complaint that sets forth a state law claim for fraudulent misrepresentation and omits any claims that are dependent upon a federal labor contract. (Doc. No. 26.) Having reviewed plaintiffs' amended complaint, and recognizing that there is not complete diversity of parties or some other basis for federal jurisdiction, the Court remands this matter to the Summit County Court of Common Pleas. Judge Sara Lioi on 10/3/2014. (P,J)
