Certain Underwriters at Lloyds, London v. Block Multifamily Group, Ltd.
The district court adhered to prior controlling authority and found that the insured had to show an amount-in-controversy of at least $75,000 with respect to each of 1,600 "Names" subscribing to a Lloyd's-based insurance policy in order to establish diversity jurisdiction. Because the insured could not do so, the case was remanded to state court.
