Appellate Victory Before Delaware Supreme Court

Successfully represented a Maryland government agency before the Delaware Supreme Court. The matter had been dismissed at the trial court level based on lack of personal jurisdiction. On appeal, the plaintiffs reasserted personal jurisdiction in Delaware on several bases, but primarily because plaintiffs were injured in Delaware and were allegedly covered by our client's insurance policy. The defense argued that, while the Delaware Long Arm Statute confers personal jurisdiction on Delaware courts when tortious injury occurs in Delaware, the plaintiffs had asserted no tort. The plaintiffs had brought a no-fault PIP claim. Accordingly, the Delaware Supreme Court found no cognizable basis for personal jurisdiction in Delaware and affirmed the lower court's decision.
