Nagravision SA v. Gotech International Technology Ltd., No. 16-20817 (5th Cir. 2018)Annotate this Case
Nagravision, a Swedish company, filed suit against Gotech, a Chinese company, in the Southern District of Texas, alleging claims under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and the Federal Communications Act (FCA). Gotech ignored the lawsuit and the subsequent $100 million-plus default judgment. After Nagravision initiated enforcement proceedings and succeeded in freezing Gotech's assets, Gotech filed a motion in the Southern District of Texas for relief from default under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 60. The Fifth Circuit affirmed the district court's denial of the motion, holding that Nagravision had standing to bring its claims; the judgment was not void for lack of subject matter jurisdiction; service was proper; and Gotech failed to establish that the district court lacked personal jurisdiction under Rule 4(k)(2).
