Hello all!

Can a New York registered attorney file a diversity jurisdiction lawsuit in MA federal court while residing outside the US, and not running an office in NY? Any thoughts? Thanks.

I don't think where the attorney is would matter. Diversity jurisdiction is based on where the parties reside, not the attorney. You'd have to just be licensed in MA federal court.

No, as you saw in the other posts. Read the D. Mass rules on PHV admission.

If you are not licensed in D. Mass., you can’t file anything there unless you are pro se.

Also, even if admitted, sometimes states require your firm/employer to either have a physical location and/or bank account maintained within the state to appear in court. Check the rules, carefully.

Thank you for pointing that out 👍🏻

You CAN be that leader that people want to work with. 1st, self assessment is required. Be honest: As a leader,have you engaged in/accepted Attribution Bias with a dash of gender &/or race bias? (See the pic) This is something we all need to be aware of as we lead our teams, provide performance feedback, & model the behaviors we'd like to see more of on our teams. Be on the lookout for Attribution Bias in yourself & on your team. It's a hindrance to creating a high-performing, inclusive culture.
