Corporate Citizenship for Diversity Claim.

Corporate Citizenship for Diversity Claim.
« on: April 05, 2008, 02:02:08 PM »
Can a corporation be considered a citizen of three states for a diversity claim. Suppose, for example, they are incorporated in New York, they have their executive headquarters in Pennsylvania, and they have their manufacturing facility in Ohio.

Certainly they would be a citizen of New York, but would it be an either/or test between Pennsylvania and Ohio based the particular test ("nerve center" "place of operations") dependent on the jurisdiction?

no, they can only be considered a citizen of two states.

well to add insurance companies are different.  Citizenship there is principal place of business, incorporation, and wherever the insured is a citizen.
