TRACK RECORD OF EXCELLENCE:
- (November 2017) Mr. McKinley and Ms. Eckerson secured a dismissal of a lawsuit under the doctrine of forum non conveniens. The court, even after considering deference to plaintiff’s choice of forum, determined that plaintiff’s attempt to sue a multinational company in its home county was improper forum shopping where the cause of action arose in another state. The court rejected plaintiff’s argument that the corporate headquarters location, without more, could constitute an appropriate venue for causes of action arising in other jurisdictions.
