The District Court for the District of New Jersey recently granted defendant AIG’s motion to dismiss Robert Plan Corporation’s claims arising out of a series of reinsurance agreements between the parties. The procedural history of the action is complex, and it involves underlying state court action, financial rehabilitation and bankruptcy proceedings. Robert Plan filed a Notice of Removal in January, 2009, and AIG subsequently moved to dismiss for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. The court granted the motion to dismiss, finding that that there was no case or controversy for the court to decide because the underlying state court action had been dismissed by the time plaintiffs filed their notice of removal. Additionally, because the Court found subject matter jurisdiction lacking, it denied as moot Robert Plan’s Motion to Transfer Venue. The Robert Plan Corp. v. American Int’l Group, Case No. 09-200 (D.N.J. Aug. 10, 2009).
