On April 8, 2016 Griesing Law’s motion to dismiss for lack of subject matter jurisdiction was granted in an eastern district of Pennsylvania declaratory judgment action.  Plaintiff, an insurance company, brought a declaratory judgment action in connection with its disputed coverage of certain former trustees in a bank receivership case. The insurance company fought to include several former trustees in the action notwithstanding the fact that the FDIC indicated via letter that it would not pursue a claim against the former trustees that were named in the letter. Griesing Law filed a  motion to dismiss on behalf of one of the former bank trustees named in the letter, and successfully advocated to have him dismissed from the action by arguing lack of subject matter jurisdiction.
