Pietrangelo v. Alvas Corp., No. 11-189 (2d Cir. 2012)Annotate this Case
Plaintiff sued the city and others in Vermont state court. Defendants removed to federal district court, which dismissed. The Second Circuit affirmed, rejecting an argument that notice of removal and consent thereto were untimely under 28 U.S.C. 1446(b). The thirty-day removal period began to run when the city defendants received service, and not when the first-served defendant received service.
