The Second Circuit reversed the district court’s dismissal of a claim for vacatur without prejudice, which had been based on the panel’s finding that it lacked personal jurisdiction. The Second Circuit examined the merits of the vacatur claim and ruled that it should have been dismissed with prejudice. Based on that determination, the Second Circuit then affirmed the district court’s dismissal without prejudice of the second claim filed in the district court for relief on the merits of the dispute (a claim for breach of contract). The Second Circuit explained that dismissal of this claim without prejudice was appropriate due to the preclusive effect of the ruling in arbitration that personal jurisdiction was lacking. The court noted: “Although it may seem odd to deny the award preclusive effect over one claim and to grant it preclusive effect over another in the same suit, that is the logical result anytime a suit includes both a claim to vacate an award and other claims that might be precluded by a final award.” Global Gold Mining, LLC v. Ayvazian, Case No. 13-4759-cv (2d Cir. Apr. 27, 2015).
