Diversity Jurisdiction for Aliens

Postby bruins521 » Fri Nov 22, 2013 12:02 am

Hello:

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.

LPR = legal permenant resident. I think these are all correct.
