Vitol, S.A. v. Capri Marine, Ltd., 11-1900

Judgment granting motion to vacate attachment and dismissing action to enforce English judgment obtained against defendants' alleged alter ego is affirmed, where: 1) the district court did not err in its determination of admiralty jurisdiction; 2) plaintiff has failed to allege particular facts supporting its alter ego theory of liability to satisfy Supplemental Rule E(2)(a)'s heightened pleading standard and do not plausibly state an alter ego claim for purposes of the motion to dismiss; and 3) plaintiff failed to carry its burden to show why the attachment of the collateral should not be vacated as the district court held.
