Original claim is diversity jurisdiction-If A sues B and then B makes a compulsory counterclaim back against A and also joins C in the counterclaim (pursuant to 13h/19), but C would destroy diversity, would the claim against C have supplemental jurisdiction or would B be considered a plaintiff in this scenario in which supplemental jurisdiction is not available for "claims by plaintiffs against persons made parties under rules 14,19,20,24"?
Or since B was the original defendant, supplemental jurisdiction is allowed?
Thanks for any replies!

If the only basis for federal jurisdiction was diversity, then any defendant from the same state as a plaintiff joined to the claim destroys it. No complete diversity means no supplemental jurisdiction.
