I am a defendant in a state action. The co-defendant has removed the state action to federal court based on all defendants' consent. I had already submitted my demurrer to that state action. So, do I have to submit Motion to Dismiss for the new federal action? Do I get 30 days to submit that Motion to Dismiss from the date of Notice To Remove? Thanks.
You need to immediately find and experienced attorney who is very familiar with Federal rules of civil procedure. Move quickly; so you can give your legal counsel reasonable time to take the necessary action.

Please talk to a civil litigation attorney about this situation. I cannot imagine sending anyone I know to a federal proceeding with counsel!!
