Civil Procedure: Jurisdiction and Venue
A teacher from State A brought a lawsuit against a librarian from State B in a state court in State A. The teacher is seeking $100,000 as compensation for tortious injuries allegedly caused by the librarian’s negligent acts in State A. The librarian filed a notice of removal in a federal court in State B. The teacher then filed a motion to remand.
Should the federal judge grant the motion to remand?
A: Yes, because the court does not have personal jurisdiction over the librarian.
B: Yes, because the original lawsuit was filed in State A.
C: No, because the court has diversity jurisdiction over the lawsuit.
D: No, because the librarian is domiciled in State B.
