For Wednesday--Section A

Monday audio. EssayVI due on Friday. Double-session on Friday.

We continue with Supplemental Jurisdiction. We continue with the connection between the joinder standard and the § 1367(a) standard and how it affects counterclaims under 13(a) and (b); consider the approach in Jones, with the Second Circuit being one of two courts (the other is the Seventh Circuit) that do not treat the standards as co-extension. Parse § 1367(b) and its interpretation in Exxon/Ortega. Again, this is a complicated statute, so spend some time digging into it.

We then turn to Removal; read the assigned statutes and try to work through how removal functions, especially how the procedure operates. Pay special attention to §§ 1441, 1446, and 1447.
