Mashreqbank PSC v. Ahmed Hamad Al Gosaibi & Brothers Company, 54

The lower court properly dismissed an entire case involving a banking transaction between a Dubai bank and a partnership headquartered in Saudi Arabia, because of the inconvenience of the forum, where: 1) the rule against dismissing a complaint sua sponte on forum non conveniens grounds did bar the dismissal here because the issue was briefed and argued; and 2) on this record, Supreme Court was corrects as a matter of law in dismissing both the complaint and the third-party complaint.
