Cert Granted in Jurisdiction Case

The Supreme Court granted cert today in Hertz v. Friend, No. 08-1107. The question presented is what test applies for purposes of determining a corporation's principal place of business for diversity jurisdiction citizenship under 28 U.S.C. ยง 1332: the "place of operations test" or the "nerve center" test, where the corporation does substantially more business in one state compared to others?  (From BNA Law Week's Supreme Court Today).
