Caveat Emptor

In AIG Europe, S.A. v. MIH Scrap Metals Intern., LLC, 2010 WL 2720593 (W.D.N.Y.,2010), Judge Arcara decided a personal jurisdiction motion in an interesting case involving a multi-million order of copper from Tanzania, that was supposed to be checked by a agent from London when it was loaded on a ship -- and which turned out to be crates full of rocks and dirt. ABL also hears that when the insurer sent an investigator to Africa to snoop around, that he was promptly greeted by armed gunmen who politely asked him to stop asking questions and to leave.

Start saving your pre 1981 pennies -- which are worth more than a crate full of rocks and dirt.
