Buchel-Ruegsegger v. Buchel, No. 07-3415

By FindLaw Staff on August 06, 2009 4:33 PM

In a dispute involving a transfer of money from Switzerland to Wisconsin, district court judgment is vacated for lack of subject-matter jurisdiction where defendant-son is a United States citizen and plaintiff-mother and the decedent were United States citizens as well as citizens of foreign states, and thus plaintiff is unable to invoke subject-matter jurisdiction as a citizen of a foreign state under 28 U.S.C. sec. 1332(a)(2).
