« The Morning Wrap | Main | Swiss Bank Whistleblower Wins $104M Reward from IRS »

September 11, 2012



Settling a claim with the defendant on whom your jurisdictional allegations rely, thus stipulating to their dismissal from the action, violates Civil Procedure 101.

I can see a lawyer making that mistake - but I'd think doing clinic work in law school would cure him/her of it. I'd love to know how surprised (if at all) these plaintiff's attorneys actually were when the dismissal came down - and why!
