Civil Procedure Fall 2014

Liberty Mut. Ins. Co. v. Wetzel

Headnote

As you read Liberty Mutual, note the ways in which the Court treats federal appellate jurisdiction as a question that resembles or involves subject matter jurisdiction. Among other similarities, you may notice that: (1) courts may raise the issue sua sponte and (2) parties may not waive such jurisdictional requirements.
