No. 01-757 Syngenta Crop Protection, Inc. v. Henson

This is a complicated civil procedure case. Rather, it is a simple civil procedure case, but all civil procedure cases seem to have extremely complicated procedural history. The question presented is whether the All Writs Act, 28 U.S.C. § 1651(a), grants original jurisdiction to federal district courts under 28 U.S.C. §1441 to remove a case that it would otherwise be unable to remove. The Eleventh Circuit held that it does not. I think that the Court will not find that the All Writs Act is an independent grant of original jurisdiction. The Court therefore will AFFIRM.
