Join Partner Hudson Jones and Senior Associate Grayson Kelly as they present “Diversity Jurisdiction: Remove Your Case to Federal Court and Keep It There” for the 2021 NAMIC Webinar Series. This presentation will evaluate the pros and cons of litigating insurance claims in federal court. The presentation will analyze three critical opportunities for defense counsel who want to remove a case from state to federal court based on diversity jurisdiction. It will emphasize when and how defendants may remove a case to federal court under 28 U.S.C. sections 1332, 1441, and 1446. The presentation will rely on federal decisions involving first-party property coverage, third-party liability coverage, and uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage to illustrate the correct procedure for removal.
The presentation will take place via OnAir on April 8, 2021.
