The litigation landscape has changed in recent years due to certain
high profile, and other precedent-setting, court decisions and

influence have emerged: removals before the forum defendant is served,motions under Twombly and Iqbal to dismiss poorly drafted complaints,and pleadings changes as required by the Class Action Fairness Act.
