The Rat Bastard's lawyers filed a notice of removal Wednesday in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia -- Clarksburg Division (Judge Irene Keeley presiding). News coverage and a link to a copy of the removal notice can be found here. TRB's lawyers assert the existence of diversity jurisdiction.
More to say on this matter later.
Correction: The notice was filed on Wednesday, not Thursday as the post originally stated.
