The District Court accepted an application of a foreign company and one of its directors, to dismiss a claim in limine, based on Forum Non Conveniens
Recently, the Tel Aviv District Court accepted an application to dismiss a substantial claim in limine, based on the argument of Forum Non Conveniens. The dispute concerns a technology for treatment of house solid waste. The District Court ruled that most of the ties connected the claim to a foreign forum (the Jersey Island or the British Virgin Islands) and not to the Israeli forum, and hence the claim should be dismissed.
The defendants (the foreign company and one of its directors) were represented in the proceedings by partner Roy Kubovsky, and by advocate Nadav Yanir, from Shibolet & Co.’s litigation department.
