Derivative Jurisdiction

7th Circuit Court of Appeals

Case Name: Randal Ricci v. Darrin Salzman, et al.,

Case No.: 19-3035

Officials: KANNE and HAMILTON, Circuit Judges.

Focus: Derivative Jurisdiction

This case calls for us to determine whether the district court properly dismissed the plaintiff’s amended complaint without prejudice under the doctrine of derivative jurisdiction even though that complaint invoked federal jurisdiction. We affirm the district court because the derivative jurisdiction doctrine barred it from exercising jurisdiction over the case and dismissal without prejudice was the appropriate result.
