Excellent Post by Drug and Device Law on New Federal Removal Statute

Here's a link to an excellent post put up last week on the Drug and Device Law Blog pertaining to the recently passed Federal Courts Jurisdiction and Venue Clarification Act of 2011 a part of which completely rewrites the federal removal statute found at 28 U.S.C. 1441(b):

Many new and important changes to the removal statute are outlined in the above post, including changes to the procedure of removal of cases involving multiple defendants from state court to federal court, timing issues, and other important topics.

I send thanks to Attorney James Beck of the Philadelphia office of  Dechert LLP and the main writer of the Drug and Device Law Blog for allowing me to link to this enlightening post on the new federal court removal statute.
