Diversity Jurisdiction Disclosure Requirement - FRCP 7.1 UPDATED

Wednesday, January 25, 2023

On December 1, 2022, Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 7.1 (Disclosure Statement) was updated to require parties or intervenors in a diversity case to file a disclosure statement “naming or identifying the citizenship of every individual or entity whose citizenship is attributed to that party or intervenor.” 

Unless the disclosure statement accompanies the first appearance of each party in a diversity jurisdiction case, please be informed that the Court will enforce the requirements of the updated rule by issuing a Notice of Diversity Jurisdiction Disclosure Statement Requirement to each party upon its first appearance.  The party will then have fourteen days from the date of the notice to submit the disclosure statement.

Diversity disclosure statements should be electronically filed by using the "Diversity Jurisdiction Disclosure Statement" event found under Civil > Other Documents.

Please contact the court's help desk at 866-323-1101 if you have any question related to electronic filing.
