13-309

Issue: Whether the requirement that all defendants in a state court action subject to removal must either join in a timely notice of removal or consent to removal the consent is satisfied by a mere representation from counsel for the removing defendant that all codefendants consent to removal (the rule in the Fourth, Sixth and Ninth Circuits) or must each codefendant file a timely written statement of consent with the court (the rule in the Fifth, Seventh and Eighth Circuits).
