On January 6, 2012, the Federal Courts Jurisdiction and Venue Clarification Act (“Act”) of 2011 , came into effect. The Act as a whole brought changes to Federal statues affecting venue, removal and jurisdiction. The purpose of this article is to discuss the important changes under the Act that impact the timing requirements associated with removing an action from a State Court to Federal Court. Under the Act, in multi-defendant litigation, each defendant now has thirty days from the date on which they were served to file a Notice of Removal to the Federal District Court.
