First Classics, Inc. v. Trajectory, Inc., No. 12 C 4473, Slip Op. (N.D. Ill. June 12, 2012) (Shadur, Sen. J.).

Judge Shadur sua sponte remanded plaintiff’s breach of contract case to the Cook County state court.  Defendants removed the case arguing that it was a copyright case and was therefore subject to federal question jurisdiction, but in fact plaintiff’s claim sounded in contract.  And a breach of copyright agreement does not create federal question jurisdiction.
