Delta Air Lines, Inc. v. Chimet, S.P.A., 09-1202

Delta Air Lines, Inc. v. Chimet, S.P.A., 09-1202, involved Delta Airlines' suit for declaratory judgment seeking to limit its liability for losing approximately 100 kilograms of pure platinum shipped from Italy to Pennsylvania.  In affirming the district court's grant of defendant's motion to dismiss on forum non conveniens grounds, the court held that the district court did not abuse its discretion by granting defendant's motion to dismiss as the private interest factors affecting the convenience of the litigants and the public interest factors affecting the convenience of the forum weighed in favor of litigating this dispute in Italy.
