Los Amigos Five Inc. v. Canopius US Ins. Inc.

The court declined to remand a declaratory-judgment action regarding an insurer’s duty to indemnify the plaintiff in a separate personal-injury suit. Although attorneys’ fees generally do not contribute to the $75,000 threshold for federal diversity jurisdiction, they do in this case because litigation fees are covered by the parties’ insurance contract. Therefore, the jurisdictional threshold is met.

Motion to remand denied.

Los Amigos Five Inc. v. Canopius US Ins. Inc., No. 3:18cv253, Oct. 29, 2018. EDVA at Richmond (Lauck).
