United States Fifth Circuit

ResetAA Font size: Print

Ashford v. Aeroframe Services, LLC, 17-30142

Held that there was no basis for federal diversity jurisdiction. One of the defendants removed an employment-related lawsuit to federal court, arguing that the only non-diverse defendant was effectively a plaintiff in the case. Disagreeing in a 2-1 decision, the Fifth Circuit discussed broad theories of federal removal jurisdiction, vacating and remanding with instructions to remand to state court.
