MBI Group, Inc. v. Credit Foncier du Cameroun, 09-7079

In an action against the government of Cameroon and a state-owned mortgage finance corporation, alleging a breach of an agreement to develop low-cost housing, the dismissal of the action based on forum non conveniens is affirmed where: 1) plaintiffs consistently worked to undermine their suit in Cameroon, and the district court did not abuse its discretion in concluding that their efforts succeeded; and 2) the district court did not abuse its discretion in finding that the public and private interests strongly favored dismissal.
