Sea Foods Co. Ltd. v. O.M. Foods Co., Ltd., B184687, B190151

In case involving foreign creditor's writ of attachment against a California importer, orders directing defendant-importer to pay plaintiff under its writ of attachment and granting motion to quash service of defendant-importer's fraud suit against plaintiff creditor are reversed as: 1) substantial evidence did not support a trial court's finding that defendant denied the writ of attachment in bad faith; and 2) plaintiff's action against bankrupt subsidiary and its collection efforts against defendant created an implied consent to California jurisdiction for defendant's action against it.
