Counterclaim >$75k, diversity of citizenship, federal question
If an attorney is licensed in Arizona but not California, but they are allowed to represent clients in federal court in Arizona, are they automatically allowed to represent clients in federal court (only) in California?
I know that a defendant can remove a case from state court to federal court (if it's properly heard in fed. court) but if a plaintiff files in state court and then moves to a different state & the defendant files a counterclaim, can the plaintiff/counter defendant then request the case removed to the fed court in the new state (domicile)?
Can the plaintiff remove the case from AZ state court to CA fed. court or must it be AZ federal court? Will provide additional info upon request. Thank you very much.
