Plaintiff v. Motorcycle Component Manufacturer
Sedgwick's New York office secured summary judgment dismissal of our client from a $10 million products liability suit. Injured in a motorcycle accident, plaintiff filed this action against the motorcycle manufacturer and several makers of the vehicle's component parts. Prior to discovery, Sedgwick brought a motion for summary judgment on grounds that the court lacked personal jurisdiction since our component-manufacturer client is a non-U.S. entity with no business or operations in New York and no contacts with the state. The court granted our motion, dismissed our client and denied plaintiff’s request for jurisdictional discovery.
