In order to sue someone in federal court, what are the two requirements mandated by federal law in order to have a suit proceed in federal court?
In order for a suit to be filed in Federal Court, the suit must have either Subject Matter Jurisdiction or Diversity of Citizenship. In order for a suit to have subject matter jurisdiction, the case must either raise a federal question, such as patent law. Additionally, a suit can be brought into Federal Court under subject matter jurisdiction if the state laws which are pleaded require a substantial review of federal law in order to answer the well pleaded state law question. However, the federal law cannot be used as a defense in order to enter Federal Court. If there is no federal question, an individual can file a suit in federal court through raising diversity. In order to have diversity the amount in controversy must exceed $75,000 and each party to the complaint must live in different states. If one of the parties to the complaint is a corporation, the court will look to the corporation's principle place of business through using the nerve center test. The nerve center test looks to the location of where the corporate officers are located, where decisions are made, and where the majority of the control of the company is located. Through subject matter jurisdiction or diversity are the only two ways in which a suit can be brought into federal court.
