Wilson v. Island Seas Invs., Ltd., No. 09-10603

By FindLaw Staff on December 29, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a personal injury action arising out of the death of an individual while on vacation in the Bahamas, dismissal of the action on forum non conveniens grounds is reversed where: 1) it was error for the district court to consider only the contacts that the case had with the Southern District of Florida; and 2) the district court erred in failing to consider, except in regard to whether the Bahamas was an adequate alternate forum, the undisputed financial difficulties the plaintiff would face if the case had to be tried in the Bahamas.
