Nursing Home Litigation, Jurisdiction: Adams v. Pathfinder Healthcare, 2006 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 27774 (D. Ark. 2006)

Defendant removed State Court action for negligence alleging there was federal jurisdiction because a federally appointed receiver was operating the nursing home. Relying on Gay v. Ruff, 292 U.S. 25 (1934), the court found that federal appointment of a receiver, without more, does not confer federal jurisdiction. Plaintiff’s motion to remand was granted.
