Jacobson, a Michigan resident, sued Hasbro Corporation for negligence after one of Hasbro's truck drivers fell asleep and ran his semi off the road and into Jacobson's house, causing structural damage of approximately $80,000. Hasbro has small plants in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana. The company is incorporated in Illinois and has its central offices there. Jacobson files his case in the state court in Michigan.
Hasbro files a motion for removal, which Jacobson contests, arguing that the case does not fall within the concurrent jurisdiction of the federal courts. Should the case be transferred? Why or why not?
