Court Stands By Decision Denying Dismissal Of Case Involving Reinsurance Of Performance Bond


A New York federal district court denied reconsideration of its refusal to dismiss a case for forum non conveniens or lack of personal jurisdiction, in a dispute involving reinsurance of a performance bond insuring the payment of fees for the right to administer Argentina’s postal services. The court was unpersuaded by the fact that the insured’s principal place of business and operations were located in Argentina, given that the reinsurer conducted relevant reinsurance business through its New York office. St. Paul Fire & Marine Insurance Co. v. Aseguradora de Creditos y Granatias, Case No. 1:12-cv-04627 (USDC S.D.N.Y. February 6, 2014).
