Overview

Spells out the basic contours of district court jurisdiction in federal question, admiralty, and diversity cases, with notes on venue and on the Supreme Court's original jurisdiction.

Deals with limitations on the exercise of jurisdiction that cuts across the various jurisdictional categories: sovereign and official immunities and a variety of statutory and judicial abstention doctrines.
