Can someone give me the answer? I cannot find it.
If a federal court is sitting in diversity jurisdiction, i.e., applying state law, is the federal court's ruling binding on the lower state courts in the state? Such as if a diversity case decided a state law issue by interpreting a state law that hadn't been done before by the state courts; does this interpretation bind a state superior court?
my prediction is No, since doing so would usurp state's ability to have its own laws
