Davis Int'l, LLC v. New Start Group Corp., 06-2294, 06-2408
In an federal RICO action brought by shareholders of a Russian company alleging a conspiracy perpetrated by members of an international organized group of Russian and American racketeers, and carried out in the U.S. and Russia, dismissal of the complaint is affirmed on direct estoppel grounds. However, denial of defendants' motion for an anti-suit injunction is reversed and remanded for a determination as to whether injunctive relief is appropriate.
