The first section of this paper is simply a brief history of the Sixth Circuit and the Western District of Michigan and a background of some of the more famous names and faces that have been involved with the Sixth Circuit. Also, included are some facts about the increasing caseload in these courts. The second section addresses Chief Justice Burger's concern of increasing caseload and of the rhetorical question, "Is the diversity jurisdiction the problem?" The conclusion I came to conflicts with the Supreme Court Chief Justice, and I tried to support it as thoroughly as possible. I, also, made an attempt at a solution. The third and final section of the paper describes the special project that I did. I cut each case up into a category for types of jurisdiction, a category that defines the different types of law suits or complaints, and a category involving different types of compensation and other miscellanceous parts of the case. It is in this section that I include personal insights about settlement in today's legal society and same incidents that have occured during the course of my legal studies that relate to these topics.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email email@example.com to request access to this SIP.
