Case Conclusion Date:September 21, 2011

Practice Area:Insurance

Outcome:Remanded to state court

Description:Insurance company files Notice of Removal to federal court, without complete diversity of citizenship among the parties.

Court denies realignment, finds incomplete diversity and remands to state court. 11cv437, 2011 US Lexis 107665 (E.D. Va. September 21, 2011).
