Date Filed#Document Text
November 9, 2017 18 Opinion or Order of the Court ORDER denying Plaintiff's 16 Motion for Default Judgment. For the reasons set forth above, the Court must conclude that Haston is unable to "establish [her] claim or right to relief by evidence satisfactory to the court" as requir ed by 28 U.S.C. § 1608(e), and therefore she is not entitled to default judgment against the Republic of Cuba. Rather, this case must be DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE for lack of subject matter jurisdiction, because the only asserted basis for this Court's jurisdiction over the Republic of Cuba--the terrorism exception to the FSIA set forth in 28 U.S.C. § 1605A-- cannot be satisfied given the facts of this case. Signed by Judge William T. Lawrence on 11/9/2017. (JDC)
