RLR Wins Dismissal of Federal Case Against Israeli Client

On August 15,2014, Judge Stanton of the Southern District of New York issued a decision granting the motion of our client, A.G.R, Eshcol Overseas, Ltd. To dismiss the case against it by Kuehne & Nagel, Inc. on the grounds of forum non conveniens. The case arose out of alleged overbilling in connection with the air cargo shipment of U.S. military equipment from Afghanistan to Dubai and Jordan for transfer to the U.S. The Court accepted our argument that, even though the plaintiff is a New York corporation, its choice of forum was entitled to minimal deference because the operative events had no nexus with New York, and that Israel, where our client is located, was the appropriate forum for resolution of the dispute.

Randy Sellier handled the matter for RLR.
