New Jersey Law Journal: NJ Supreme Court's Entire Controversy Doctrine Ruling - What Attorneys Need to Know

Litigation is full of surprises. Sometimes you win cases you thought you would lose. Sometimes you lose cases you thought you would win. And sometimes you encounter things you never learned or had reason to deal with in law school or in practice.  One of those rules (to many of us) is Fed. R. Civ. P. 39(c) – the advisory jury rule – which provides that “[i]n an action not triable of right by a jury, the court, on motion or on its own, may try an issue with an advisory jury.”  Don't worry.  You now have a short primer on advisory juries in federal court and won’t be blindsided if the issue comes up on short notice (and, actually, it may).1 ...READ MORE

New Jersey Law Journal: Asking a Federal Court to Retain Jurisdiction to Enforce a Settlement Agreement

Litigants have different reasons for wanting to try their cases in federal court. But a wise band of non-lawyers (although litigants) once sang, “You can’t always get what you want.” (Written by Mick Jagger & Keith Richards in The Rolling Stones’ 1969 album, Let It Bleed.) A party does not have a right to litigate in federal court simply because it files its case there, even if the other parties agree, because federal courts are courts of limited jurisdiction. Federal subject matter jurisdiction cannot be conferred by consent nor its requirement waived. A U.S. district court must have either federal question jurisdiction or diversity jurisdiction. This much is taught in basic civil procedure classes in law school and generally understood by practitioners. ...READ MORE
