Corporate Citizenship for Diversity Claim.
« on: April 05, 2008, 04:02:08 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?

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