In Uzan v. Telsim Mobil Telekomunikasyon Hizmetleri A.S. , Cem Cengiz Uzan filed suit asserting several tort claims against the directors of Telsim Mobil -- his former employer.
A case may be heard in New York, when a person or a party "does business" in the state and a claimant has suffered an injury here.
Uzan contended New York had jurisdiction over his dispute because Telsim had defended an unrelated lawsuit and sought a loan in New York.
When the New York County Supreme Court found in Telsim's favor, Uzan appealed to the Appellate Division, First Department.
Since the company's practices didn't amount to engaging in business in the state, and Uzan's "injury" didn't occur within our boundaries, the AD1 affirmed the dismissal.
Who's going to Telsim?
