Hay Group v. Schneider

In this appeal, the Court of the Third Circuit held that the District Court erred in granting summary judgment on the basis that Hay was precluded by German law from bringing this action. Since Hay’s contract assignment claim sought to functionally undo the German litigation, however, the Court affirmed the summary judgment on that claim but reversed the District Court’s grant of summary judgment on Hay’s sham investigation claim and remanded that claim.
