No Jurisdiction. The Second Circuit has held that it did not have appellate jurisdiction to hear an appeal from an order remanding a case to state court after the District Court had joined a party whose presence destroyed subject-matter jurisdiction. The Court also held that the collateral order doctrine did not allow the Court to review the District Court's joinder order.
