Cleveland-Marshall Legal Studies Paper

Abstract:     
In 2007 and 2009, the U.S. Supreme Court altered the requirements for adequate statement of a legal claim in the filing of lawsuits. Unwittingly, it also changed the way lower courts evaluated their own grounds for jurisdiction. The error propagates rapidly and will be difficult to eradicate without further guidance from the Supreme Court.
