Decision and Order Adopting in Part and Modifying in Part 73 Report and Recommendations; granting 23 Motion to Dismiss under the doctrine of forum non conveniens ; denying 71 Motion to Strike. The court hereby MODIFIES the Report' s forum non conveniens determination. Norway is an adequate alternative forum and the balance of private and public factors weigh heavily of dismissal on the basis of forum non conveniens. The court also ADOPTS the Report's conclus ion that the parties' dispute should be arbitrated in Norway. Therefore, Skuld's Motion to Dismiss for an alternative forum is GRANTED.
