By FindLaw Staff on August 21, 2009 5:04 PM

In a case involving alleged violations under the United States Housing Act and the Fair Housing Act, defendant's motion for dismissal of the appeal is granted where an order remanding a case to the state court from which it was removed is not reviewable on appeal or otherwise, as remands based on the Rooker-Feldman doctrine are jurisdictional, and thus subject to the prohibition of the appellate review in section 1447(d).
