Twice in April, Minnesota Litigator covered this issue. In June, Minnesota Litigator noted another decision in which lawyers overlooked a pleading requirement of 12 U.S.C. § 1332, when pleading “diversity of citizenship” for a business entity (that is, a corporation, partnership, or limited liability company). Here we go again.
Absent some interesting nuance or fine point, this will conclude Minnesota Litigator’s dissemination of this threshold requirement for pleading subject matter jurisdiction for the United States District Court when counsel purports to invoke the court’s jurisdiction based on the “citizenship” of an LLC (or any other business organization).
