Tokio Marine & Fire Insurance Co. v. Ito

In this case, we assisted plaintiff’s counsel in opposing a petition for certiorari in which a defendant sought review of a court of appeals’ decision denying a defendant’s motion to dismiss for forum non conveniens and allowing the case to proceed in the plaintiff’s choice of forum. The defendant had argued that Japan, not California would be the proper forum, but the court had held that California was appropriate because it was the focal point of the plaintiff’s breach of contract, breach of implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, and fraud claims. The Supreme Court denied the petition.
