Memorandum in opposition to Charter's motion to dismiss (1995)

Scope and Content

- Plaintiff’s memorandum of law (in re asbestos personal injury cases, Arrington Lead No 93-9-114 et al.) in opposition to Charter’s motion to dismiss the second amended complaint for lack of personal jurisdiction, submitted by Hayden S Dent, 6 December 1995, in the Circuit Court of Jones County, Mississippi, Second Judicial District
Argues among other things that at all times Charter and its predecessor Central Mining controlled Cape's mining operations in South Africa and that therefore the corporate distinction between the two companies should be disregarded and Charter should assume Cape's contacts with the State of Mississippi. Further, that the Court should disregard the corporate veil between Cape and Charter because Cape had introduced into the marketplace a product which it knew would be dangeous to the end user. Etc.
