AND REVISION NOTES (FRBP 7019)
ADVISORY COMMITTEE NOTES 1983
This rule addresses a situation different from that encountered by the
district court when its
jurisdiction is based on diversity of citizenship under 28 U.S.C. § 1332.
Joining of a party whose citizenship is the same as that of an adversary
destroys the district court's
jurisdiction over the entire civil action but under 28 U.S.C. § 1471 the
attempted joinder of such a
person would not affect
the bankruptcy court's jurisdiction over the original adversary proceeding.
ADVISORY COMMITTEE NOTES 1987 AMENDMENT
The rule is amended to delete the reference to retention of the adversary
proceeding if venue is improper. See 28 U.S.C. § 1412.
