Saadeh v. Farouki
United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit
107 F.3d 52 (D.C. Cir. 1997)
Saadeh (plaintiff) sued Farouki (defendant) when Farouki defaulted on a loan, invoking diversity jurisdiction on the ground that Saadeh was a Greek citizen and Farouki had recently been granted permanent resident status in the United States and lived in Maryland. On appeal from a judgment for Saadeh, the court of appeals ordered the case dismissed for lack of subject matter jurisdiction.
