We do use the nerve center test, if we're talking about personal jurisdiction. Venue is broader.
Correct, and Venue includes minimum contracts, where a substantial part of the acts in question occurred, or where one or more of the defendants reside (nerve center and/or incorporation).
I believe that, for purposes of venue, a defendant corporation is said to reside in any state where it would be subject to PJ. That's broader than the residency test for purposes of PJ.
Residency for PJ = HQ / nerve center
Residency for venue = Anywhere subject to PJ (which includes not just HQ / nerve center for general PJ, but also places where the corporation has sufficient minimum contacts for specific PJ)
That is exactly what I said...
Sorry, reading comp fail on my part.
