JURISDICTIONAL ORDER : Upon review of the parties submissions, the undersigned finds that the plaintiff has sustained his burden of proving that this Court has subject-matter jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. § 1332. Additionally, although the plaint iff did not expressly plead an alternative basis of jurisdiction in his complaint, his allegation that the accident underlying the lawsuitoccurred on a fixed platform on the Outer Continental Shelf (Rec. Doc. 1 at 7), which was confirmed by the defendant (Rec. Doc. 12 at 1), affords federal question jurisdiction. Signed by Magistrate Judge Patrick J Hanna on 5/14/13.
