Civil Practice – Diversity Jurisdiction – Amount in Controversy – Insurance Coverage — $50,000 Limit (access required)

State Farm Fire & Casualty Co. v. Sparkleberry Hill Apartments The plaintiff-insurer seeks a declaration that it need not indemnify the defendant-insureds in an underlying claim relating to mold in one of the insureds’ apartments. If the endorsement in question did apply, it would only provide $50,000 of coverage. Defendants have shown that plaintiff’s claim does not satisfy the amount-in-controversy requirement of 28 U.S.C. § 1332(a)(1). This case is dismissed without prejudice.
