Diversity Jurisdiction: Where Should Court Battles Be Fought?

Sponsored by the Federalist Society's Practice Groups and the Georgetown Center for the Constitution March 03, 02:30 PMHart Auditorium

Washington, DC 20001

In a recent article, constitutional lawyer Charles Cooper argued that federal courts have erred by too narrowly construing their statutory grants of diversity jurisdiction. Mr. Cooper urges the courts to recognize much broader federal jurisdiction based on diversity of citizenship as a matter of both statutory and constitutional interpretation. Judge Diane Wood of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, in a 2009 address transcribed and published in the Temple Law Review, has also weighed in.. Still others have called on Congress to consider legislation that would expand federal courts' diversity jurisdiction to include all cases in which any two parties come from different states. Our panel will discuss whether (and if so, how) federal court jurisdiction should be expanded. Register now!
