Hermetic Seal Corporation, Appellant, v. Savoy Industries, Inc., Appellee, 401 F.2d 775 (5th Cir. 1968)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit - 401 F.2d 775 (5th Cir. 1968) October 31, 1968

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida; Charles B. Fulton, Judge.

Herman Grayson, Miami Beach, Fla., for appellant.

Paul B. Anton, Abrams, Anton, Robbins & Resnick, Hollywood, Fla., for appellee.

Before WISDOM, GODBOLD and SIMPSON, Circuit Judges.


Appellant's suit against Savoy Industries, Inc. (Industries) was dismissed below for lack of jurisdiction over the person. We affirm.

In its attempt to bring Industries within the jurisdiction of the district court Hermetic relied upon three of Florida's long arm statutes, Florida Statutes 47.16, 47.17(1) and 47.171, F.S.A.

Following an evidentiary hearing, the trial court granted Industries' Motion to Dismiss for lack of jurisdiction. That decision is reported at 290 F. Supp. 240. We conclude that the case was correctly decided below, for the reasons there set forth.
