Alvarez v. Midland Cred. Mgmt., Inc., No. 09-10851

In plaintiffs' appeal from a denial of a motion to remand in a case removed pursuant to the Class Action Fairness Act (CAFA), the appeal is dismissed where, as a result of the elimination of the unique issues under CAFA and the desire not to resolve complex issues of federal versus state jurisdiction on a limited record with abbreviated briefing and decisional deadlines, the court of appeals' original permission was improvidently granted.
