Supreme Court ruled on corporation's principal place of business
Arjun Mishra at 12:00 AM ET

On February 23, 2010, the US Supreme Court ruled in Hertz Corp. v. Friend that a corporation's principal place of business for the sake of diversity jurisdiction is its "nerve center." The Court unanimously overturned the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit's determination [PDF] that employees of Hertz could sue the company in California. Justice Breyer wrote that the '"nerve center" is likely to be the business' headquarters.
