Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 385 F.2d 1023 (9th Cir. 1967) October 30, 1967

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California; Sherrill Halbert, Judge.

Charles E. Goff, Gudmundson, Siggins, Stone & Goff, San Francisco, Cal., for appellant.

David P. Weaver, Jr., Jack H. Werchick, San Francisco, Cal., for appellee.

Before BARNES, HAMLEY and JERTBERG, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM:


This is an interlocutory appeal from an order denying appellant's motion to dismiss for lack of federal jurisdiction, based on alleged diversity of citizenship. It presents a complicated factual situation upon which the trial court concluded there was diversity, and hence jurisdiction.

We approve and confirm the trial court's finding and order (C.T. 75-79), and on the authorities therein enumerated we affirm. Messersmith v. Matteucci, D.C., 276 F. Supp. 310.
