U.S.C. § 1332(c)(1). Cinram is a corporation organized and existing under the laws of the State of Delaware, with its principal place of business in the State of Indiana. Thus, Cinram is a citizen of both Delaware and Indiana. Id. Ravic does not dispute these facts, and does not oppose Cinram's motion.
It is well settled that diversity jurisdiction does not exist where plaintiff is a citizen of a state of which any defendant is also a citizen. Because Ravic and Cinram are both citizens of Indiana, there is incomplete diversity, and this court therefore lacks subject matter jurisdiction.
For the foregoing reason, defendant Cinram's motion to dismiss for lack of subject matter jurisdiction is granted in its entirety.
