Kennedy, 2008 WL 4826070, *1 (E.D. Cal. 2008) (no federal jurisdiction when FDIC "is appointed as receiver exclusively by appointment of state authorities and only interpretation of state law is involved"); Sarraga v. Girod Vela & Co., Inc., 649 F.Supp 11, 14 (D. Puerto Rico 1986) ("it has been consistently held that federal courts do not have jurisdiction in suits brought by or against the FDIC acting in its capacity 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 as receiver of a state bank, and which involve only the rights or obligations of the state bank, its depositors, etc., under state law").
