LAS VEGAS -- Brian Terry was retained to defend Washington, D.C. based trade show operator Solar Energy Trade Shows, LLC. The company is responsible for the organizing and operating large scale conventions relevant to the promotion of the solar energy industry. The company was sued in Nevada by a publisher of certain trade show dailies for refusing to lease booth space at a 2010 convention unless the publisher agreed to certain terms due to prior conduct at a 2009 convention. The publisher claimed an unknown amount of damage.
With the help of associate Michael Lowry, a motion to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction was filed. SETS argued both the 2009 and 2010 conventions occurred in southern California. It also argued it had no minimum contacts with Nevada that would give the court jurisdiction to hear the case. SETS won the motion to dismiss. It also prevailed against the publisher’s request that the court reconsider its prior ruling based upon new evidence. The order dismissing the case is now final.
