Jehovah’s Witnesses, has agreed to dismiss the case against one of the companies, Vale Canada, because New York courts do not have jurisdiction over foreign businesses.
They had to agree to dismiss?....... because they didn't know in advance that NY courts didn't have jurisdiction over foreign companies?
I'm not a lawyer and EVEN I knew that!
Didn't they see the address on the paperwork while they were compiling it?
"Joe... this company is in Canada. Should we go ahead and file in New York City anyway?"
"Yes Bob, let's do that. And may Jehovah bless our efforts."
