When Turkish Firms Sues Trail Mix Purveyor To Fresh Direct Many Defendants Skip SDNY

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 13 – A printing company based in Izmir, Turkey sued a slew of US based companies for not paying $250,000. On May 13 it showed up in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, and Inner City Press was there.

   Most of the defendants were not. SDNY Judge Lewis J. Liman urged that Turkish plaintiff SESA, Inc. filed a motion to default in six weeks. While the named defendants were Terrafina LLC, FruNut Global Commodities and others, there was reference not only to Mitsubishi but also to FreshDirect. 

 FruNut is "engaged in the manufacture of healthy foods such as nuts, trail mixes and dried fruit." Who knew such healthy things are manufactured. 

  Judge Liman was transparent in the proceeding, noting how his rules differ from other judges' in the District - he lets the litigants set the timelines for their motion papers, and imposes no paper limits.   But if FruNut never appears, will anyone hear of it?

The case is SESA, Inc. v. Terrafina, LLC et al., 20-cv-1265 (Liman).
