Professor Strong Cited by Three Federal Courts

Professor S.I. Strong’s scholarship was recently cited by three federal district courts.

Two cases – Widows Sons Grand Chapter of the Kings Guard Inc. v. Davenport, 2018 WL 9643183 (W.D.N.Y. June 13, 2018), and Buckley v. Universal Sewing Supply, Inc., 2019 WL 5260365 (M.D. Penn. Oct. 17, 2019) – cited her article, “Jurisdictional Discovery in United States Federal Courts,” 67 Washington and Lee Law Review 489 (2010), which conducted a comprehensive and comparative analysis of the need for and use of jurisdictional discovery, meaning discovery to ascertain whether jurisdiction exists in a U.S. court.

A third case – Wurts v. Branch Banking and Trust Co., 2019 WL 4044092 (S.D. W. Va. Aug. 26, 2019) – cited her article, “Congress and Commercial Trusts: Dealing With Diversity Jurisdiction Post-Americold,” 69 Florida Law Review 1021 (2017), which discussed the way in which diversity jurisdiction is established for commercial trusts (as opposed to traditional intergenerational trusts).
