A criminal suspect filed an action in federal district court against the police officer who arrested him and the city that employed the officer, claiming that the officer beat him even though he was not resisting arrest. The suspect's action asserted a battery claim against the police officer and a federal statutory claim against the city for violation of the suspect's civil rights. The suspect and the police officer are citizens of State A, and the city in which the arrest took place is in State A. The action seeks $50,000 each from the police officer and the city. Does the federal district court have subject matter jurisdiction over either of the claims?

    The court has federal question jurisdiction over the federal statutory claim against the city and supplemental jurisdiction over the tort claim against the police officer.
