Tamam et al v. Fransabank Sal et al
OPINION AND ORDER: #98423 Defendants Rule 12(b)(2) motions to dismiss for lack of jurisdiction are granted. To the extent Plaintiffs have requested jurisdictional discovery, that application is denied. As this Court cannot exert personal jurisdiction over the foreign banks, it will not reach the issues presented in Defendants Rule 12(b)(6) motions to dismiss. Although I see no way that Plaintiffs can establish jurisdiction, in an excess of caution, they are given until February 5, 2010 to replead. If no new complaint is served and filed by the close of business that day, the case will be dismissed and stricken from the docket of this Court. SO ORDERED. (Signed by Judge John F. Keenan on 1/5/2010) (jmi) Modified on 1/6/2010 (ajc).
