John Doe v. Star Clippers, Ltd., et al

Motion to Dismiss Appeal

In this case, a crewmember for Star Clippers Cruises was injured when the food elevator in the galley broke and fell onto his arm, causing severe fractures and nerve damage. After jurisdictional discovery and briefing in response to a motion to dismiss in the trial court, the Plaintiff’s case was dismissed for lack of personal jurisdiction. Our appellate attorneys filed an appeal on behalf of the injured seafarer. The appeal was later dismissed after the parties reached a confidential settlement.
