What is considered supplemental jurisdiction?
Supplemental jurisdiction is the means through which one can bring into federal court claims over which a federal court would normally not have subject matter jurisdiction. It is a way, for example, that one can bring state claims into federal court even though there is no diversity jurisdiction.
What is the purpose of supplemental jurisdiction?
Supplemental jurisdiction promotes judicial efficiency because all of a party’s claims can be decided in one trial by the federal court, rather than in two trials by a federal and a state court. The supplemental jurisdiction statute codifies the common law doctrines of “ancillary” and “pendent” jurisdiction.
Can supplemental jurisdiction destroy diversity?
In cases where the federal court’s jurisdiction is based solely on diversity jurisdiction, however, the court does not have supplemental jurisdiction to hear claims by or against additional parties if their presence in the case would destroy complete diversity (28 U.S.C. § 1367(b)).
Is supplemental jurisdiction a form of subject-matter jurisdiction?
Supplemental jurisdiction allows a federal court to adjudicate a claim over which it does not have independent subject-matter jurisdiction, on the basis that the claim is related to a claim over which the federal court does have independent jurisdiction.
What is the difference between pendant and supplemental jurisdiction?
Pendent jurisdiction allowed federal courts to assert jurisdiction over state law claims having a sufficient nexus to the federal claim. Ancillary jurisdiction, on the other hand, allowed courts in diversity cases to assert jurisdiction over non-diverse parties joined after the filing of the original suit.
Does ancillary jurisdiction still exist?
Ancillary jurisdiction has been replaced entirely by supplemental jurisdiction, per 28 U.S.C. § 1367(b), part of the U.S. supplemental jurisdiction statute.
Which is better joinder of parties or supplemental jurisdiction?

Is there a need for supplemental jurisdiction ( SJ )?
No need for supplemental jurisdiction (“SJ”) because there’s original SMJ over both claims. There is 1331 federal question (“FQ”) jurisdiction over the copyright claim. There is also 1338 copyright jurisdiction over the copyright claim.
Is there original subject matter jurisdiction over the second claim?
The court has original federal question jurisdiction over the federal claim. There’s no original subject matter jurisdiction over the second claim because it’s a state claim and there’s no diversity of citizenship. 1367 (a) permits SJ over the state claim. First, a CNOF exists because both claims arise from the same T&O.
How is pendent jurisdiction related to ancillary jurisdiction?
While pendent jurisdiction assisted plaintiffs, ancillary jurisdiction assisted defendants. A defendant properly brought into federal court was allowed by the doctrine of ancillary jurisdiction to assert any claims it had that arose out of the same transaction or occurrence as the original, jurisdictionally-proper claim.
