Attorneys Matthew S. LaBeau and Christopher T. Lang Obtain Dismissal of a Declaratory Action Based on Lack of Jurisdiction


Collins Einhorn Farrell PC attorneys Matthew S. LaBeau and Christopher T. Lang recently defended an independent medical device sales consultant in a declaratory action related to unpaid sales commissions.  The plaintiff, a Michigan company, was a distributer of medical device products and successor to a contract with the defendant sales consultant.  The defendant sold products in other states, but not in Michigan. The plaintiff filed the action attempting to obtain a declaration that it was not responsible to the defendant for any sales commissions.  Matt and Chris were able to persuade the trial court that it did not have personal jurisdiction over the defendant.  The court granted a motion for summary disposition and dismissed the case entirely.
