"1. There is complete diversity among the parties.
Plaintiff Thomas Imperatrice is an Arizona resident. Complaint, ACE American Insurance Company (“ACE”) is a Pennsylvania corporation with its principal place of business in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Therefore, the plaintiff and defendant are citizens of different states and complete diversity exists between them.

2. The Amount in Controversy Exceeds $75,000.
This case arises out of plaintiff’s claim for benefits under an occupational accident disability policy issued by ACE. Plaintiff alleges that ACE breached the insurance contract and acted in bad faith when it terminated his claim for long-term disability benefits and medical expense benefits. Plaintiff seeks both compensatory and punitive damages. ACE denies any wrongdoing and disputes plaintiff’s claims. Nevertheless, it is ACE’s understanding that plaintiff seeks damages in excess of $75,000."
