Federal District Court Dismisses Claims Against RAE Corporation for Lack of Personal Jurisdiction

On April 18, 2008, the Southern District of New York dismissed claims against Kasowitz client, Technical Systems, a division of RAE Corporation ("RAE"), based upon lack of personal jurisdiction.  The District Court agreed that notwithstanding the twelve-year history during which the plaintiff sold RAE equipment in New York, RAE was not subject to the personal jurisdiction of the New York courts.  Kasowitz partners Eric Herschmann and David Ross represented RAE in this matter.
