Nicolson Law Group Obtains Dismissal of Seven-Figure Product Liability Claim

In the case Ginzburg v. Electrolux Home Products, No. 17-3384 (E.D. Pa. Jan. 19, 2018, Quinones Alejandro, J.), NLG attorneys successfully secured the dismissal of a seven-figure product liability suit.  Though originally filed in state court in Philadelphia County, NLG removed the matter to federal court and immediately filed a Motion to Dismiss. 

NLG argued that although the lawsuit had been filed prior to the expiration of the applicable two-year statute of limitations, Plaintiff failed to effectuate service upon the Defendant in the manner and within the time period prescribed by the Pennsylvania Rules of Civil Procedure.  The court ultimately agreed, and dismissed all claims as time barred on the face of the pleadings.
