The Massachusetts Market Assistance Plan is a voluntary network of participating homeowners insurance companies and insurance brokers to assist residents in obtaining homeowners insurance. Massachusetts Division of Insurance: They are calculated as a percentage of the dollar amount of coverage on the dwelling.
Decided March 31, Advertisement 1 This appeal raises two issues. The first arises from the district court's dismissal of plaintiff's complaint for incomplete diversity. When plaintiff then moved for leave to amend his complaint to eliminate the nondiverse parties, the district court's denial of that motion resulted in the second issue.
With respect to this latter issue, the federal rules instruct courts to determine whether an action may in "equity and good conscience" proceed without the nonjoined parties. As an alternative to dismissal, a court should take a flexible approach when deciding what parties need to be present for a just resolution of the suit.
The phrase "good conscience" implies a careful and constructive consideration of those parties that are necessary to the litigation. As a consequence, very few cases should be terminated due to the absence of nondiverse parties unless there has been a reasoned determination that their nonjoinder makes just resolution of the action impossible.
Here the district court's denial of the motion to amend was done without any consideration of these constructive concepts. One granted defendant, New York Property Insurance Underwriting Association's Associationits motion to dismiss plaintiff's complaint for lack of diversity of citizenship and the other denied Jaser's cross-motion for leave to amend his complaint to exclude the nondiverse parties.
We affirm the former order and reverse the latter. He submitted a claim to defendant Association which denied liability. Plaintiff then brought the instant diversity action in the Southern District of New York based on diversity of citizenship pursuant to 28 U.
The Association resides in New York, but at least one of its members is a Texas citizen. In light of these facts, the district court dismissed the action for lack of subject matter jurisdiction because diversity of citizenship was incomplete. The district court, as noted, also denied Jaser's motion for leave to amend his complaint to exclude nondiverse defendant members of the Association.
Jaser has appealed both orders. II 4 The citizenship of an unincorporated association for diversity purposes has been determined for nearly years by the citizenship of each and every member of that association. United Service Automobile Association, F. Under this rule, the citizenship of the parties to this suit is not diverse because Jaser is a Texan and one Association member, Vanguard Insurance Company, is a Texas corporation.
Instead, relying on Mason v. But, as we noted in Baer: In essence, plaintiff is presenting an argument already considered and rejected by this Court and the Supreme Court.
See Bouligny, U. We affirm therefore the district court's proper holding that the parties lacked diversity of citizenship. III 6 Such ruling does not end the matter. Even though the action was properly dismissed, the district court improperly denied plaintiff an opportunity to revive his complaint under Fed.
Rule 15 a sets forth a policy in favor of granting leave to amend, stating that "leave shall be freely given when justice so requires. In deciding whether to grant Jaser leave to amend, the district court did not consider whether the nondiverse Association members are indispensable to the instant action, but without comment simply denied Jaser's cross-motion.COMMERCIAL PROPERTY UNDERWRITING REQUIREMENTS • Agreed Amount, Blanket Insurance, Quota Share or layered property insurance is not available.
