Equal access - the D should only be entitled to remove if the case as pleaded by the P could have been filed in fed court initially
Generally parties in fed cases may only appeal from final decisions of the district courts - all parties' objections to trial court's rulings will be resolved in one appeal
exception to the general rule (1291) - allows interlocutory appeals (an immediate appeal even if trial is pending in court)
a party is entitled to voluntarily dismiss a case without leave of court before the D responds to the complaint
prevents removal of a diversity case is any D is "a citizen of the State in which such action is brought".
once case is removed, state court loses all power over it "state court shall proceed no further unless and until the case is remanded"
"all injunctions, orders and other proceedings had in such action prior to its removal shall remain in full force and effect until dissolved or modified by the district court"
