ABSTRACT
The article discusses issues related to the expansion of federal court jurisdiction over state law claims in the U.S. The expansion of federal court jurisdiction is evidenced by the passage of the supplemental jurisdiction statue by Congress in 1990 which provided sustenance to the threatened doctrines of pendent and ancillary jurisdiction. The doctrine of fraudulent joinder is also discussed.
