Sourcing[edit]

This is new rule handed down by SCOTUS this year

http://www.scotuswiki.com/index.php?title=Hertz_Corporation_v._Friend

This article contains no sources for its material. The material appears to be correct, but that excuse the need for reliable sourcing. SMP0328. (talk) 02:18, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

I believe SMP0328 meant to say that correctness doesn't excuse the need for reliable sourcing. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.213.206.126 (talk) 13:43, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

Discrepancy in amount in controversy section[edit]

the page states that diversity jursidiction requires $75,000. this is correct AFAIK. However, when talking about the "legal certainty" test the page starts talking about $250,000. I'm pretty sure that's a mistake and the writer meant $75,000 all along. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 149.68.243.9 (talk) 15:19, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

The article has been heavily vandalized recently. Thanks for pointing that out.--Coolcaesar (talk) 10:01, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

Who thought that diversity isn't subject-matter?[edit]

For the purposes of the heading, anyway. C'mon. Please. Lockesdonkey (talk) 04:25, 4 October 2012 (UTC)
