Insurance Corporation of Ireland, Ltd. v. Compagnie des Bauxites de Guinee
Citation:456 U.S. 694 (1982)
After sustaining business losses due to mechanical problems at its mines, Respondent, a Delaware corporation owned jointly by a Pennsylvania company and the Republic of Guinee, sought reimbursement from certain business interruption insurance policies. After the insurers denied coverage for the loss, Respondent sued Petitioner, a foreign insurer, and other insurers in federal district court in Pennsylvania. Petitioner objected to the jurisdiction of the Pennsylvania and moved for summary judgment. Respondent sought discovery related to the Respondent’s insurance policies in Pennsylvania. Petitioners failed to comply with court-ordered production of the requested discovery in Pennsylvania. The district court found that it had jurisdiction as a sanction under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 37(b)(2)(A).
