FDIC sought to remove employment suit by bank employee who claimed she was fired for complaining about bank lending practices. Employee sought discovery from the bank that included FDIC exam reports. After the state court granted the plaintiff's motion to compel the production of those reports, the FDIC sought to intervene on short notice. When the state judge denied the FDIC's expedited treatment request, the FDIC removed the case to federal court under 12 U.S.C. § 1819(b)(2)(B). Both the district court judge and the 9th Circuit ruled that the FDIC has no statutory right to remove when it is not an actual party to the state court suit. Allen v. FDIC.
