The Hawaii federal district court denied the pro se plaintiff's motion to dismiss his claim against the carrier without prejudice. Greenspon v. AIG Specialty Ins. Co., et al., 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 144148 (D. Haw. Aug. 23, 2019).
Greenspon secured a default judgment against AIG's insured in state court in 2014. In November 2018, AIG removed the case to federal district court. Greenspon filed a motion to remand. On February 25, 2019, the court denied Greenspon's motion for remand because Greenspon had not asserted a claim against the sole in-state party, a law firm, rendering the law firm's presence as a defendant improper and resulting in its exclusion when determining diversity.
