For establishing diversity jurisdiction involving aliens as litigants, are these hypotheticals correct?
CA v. French citizen – allowed
CA v. NY + French citizen – allowed
French citizen v. CA – allowed
French citizen v. English Citizen + CA – not allowed
French citizen + CA v. French citizen – not allowed
French citizen + CA v. French citizen + AZ – allowed
French citizen v. English Citizen – not allowed, unless one is a LPR and established domicile in a US state
Thanks for any help!

Don't know what LPR is but otherwise correct. I assume LPR means the alien is domociled perm in a state, in which case I think alien is still treated as alien with the additional limitation of not being div from citizens of that state.
