AiVi Nguyen Moderated Massachusetts Bar Association Webinar “Establishing Citizenship for Diversity Jurisdiction: This is Not What I Remember from Law School!”

What is the citizenship of limited liability companies? Of a trust? Of a free-spirited backpacker hitchhiking his way around the country? While every lawyer likely knows that the general diversity jurisdiction statute, 28 U.S.C. s. 1332(a), requires complete diversity between all plaintiffs on the one hand and all defendants on the other, recent decisions in the U.S. District Court of Massachusetts and the Court of Appeals for the First Circuit highlight the complexities of citizenship and the importance of establishing it early.

On April 3, AiVi Nguyen moderated a Massachusetts Bar Association webinar featuring Chief Judge F. Dennis Saylor IV and Boston College Law School Professor Sergio Campos who discussed best practices for establishing or disputing jurisdiction based on diversity.
