Diversity of citizenship and long arm statutes are significant considerations in the litigation process. Both will be covered in the following question.
Are there any benefits to bringing a diversity of citizenship case in state court instead of a federal court? Discuss the differences between your local state court rules of civil procedure and the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP). Discuss the differences between case management under FRCP and your local state court rules of procedure. Please cite the rules you are discussing, appropriately. What issues were considered inÂ International Shoe Co. v. WashingtonÂ 326Â U.S. 310Â (1945)? Explain the constitutional implications of long-arm statutes.
Justify your ideas and responses by using appropriate examples and references from Westlaw (including primary sources such as cases, statutes, rules, and regulations), government websites, and peer-reviewed legal periodicals (not lawyer blogs), which can be supplemented by law dictionaries or the textbook. This means you need to use more than just your text and legal dictionaries.
