Campbell Campbell Edwards & Conroy obtained a dismissal in Providence Superior Court for lack of personal jurisdiction.
The Providence Superior Court, allowed Defendant Raytheon Company’s motion to dismiss Plaintiff’s Second Amended Complaint for lack of personal jurisdiction pursuant to R.I. Super.R.Civ.P. 12(b)(2). The Court ruled that Plaintiff lacked specific jurisdiction over Raytheon because the record was devoid of any allegation that the instant claim arose from or related to any contacts Raytheon had with Rhode Island. The fact that Raytheon had a facility in Rhode Island did not establish specific jurisdiction because the Plaintiff did not make any showing that the facility was connected to the instant claim.
