Emirat AG (Plaintiff) is a company registered in Germany for risk management and related promotional aspects. Sabafon is a telephone services company who hired plaintiff to print 25 million scratch-off phone cards with promotional games and prizes that required matching six of 12 scratch-off boxes to win. High Point Printing (Defendant), who subcontracted to co-defendant WS Packaging Group, Inc. (Defendant) was hired by plaintiff to print the cards. WS guaranteed the accuracy of the printing but not the scratch-off game construction. Letters of indemnification between WS and High Point provided that any action by the buyer had to be brought within one year of delivery of the cards.
