Interface Partners International Ltd. v. Hananel, No. 08-1983

By FindLaw Staff on August 06, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a breach of contract action, district court's grant of defendant's motion to dismiss on forum non conveniens grounds is affirmed where: 1) the court did not err in finding plaintiff's choice of its home forum to be undeserving of heightened deference; 2) the court properly found that Israel is an adequate alternative forum as its courts address the sort of breach of contract claim asserted in this case and defendant is an Israeli citizen amenable to service there; and 3) the court did not abuse its discretion in applying the public and private interest factors and reasonably concluding that they strongly favored Israel as the more convenient and judicially efficient forum.
