September 18, 2019 Opinion or Order Filing 272 MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER: re: 217 MOTION for Summary Judgment filed by Alessandro Bazzoni, CT Energia, Ltd., 221 MOTION for Summary Judgment filed by CT Energia Ltd. d/b/a Elemento Ltd., 226 MOTION for Partial Summary Judgment filed by Ce ntauro Liquid Opportunities Master Fund, L.P. For the foregoing reasons, Centauro's motion for summary judgment is granted as against CTEL with respect to Centauro's First Cause of Action and denied in all other respects. Centauro's cl aims against Bazzoni and Elemento are dismissed for lack of personal jurisdiction. Centauro may, by letter and accompanying exhibits, if any, make a written proffer, consistent with the Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(b)(2) standard, demonstrating a legal and factual basis for the exercise of personal jurisdiction over Bazzoni and/or Elemento on a veil piercing theory under Maltese law, no later than October 2, 2019. Any responsive submission must be filed no later than October 9, 2019. In li ght of the dismissal of Centauro's claims against Elemento and Bazzoni for lack of personal jurisdiction, the Court does not address the merits of those claims and accordingly denies without prejudice Moving Defendants' motions forsummary j udgment to the extent that they seek dismissal of Centauro's alter ego and other claims against Bazzoni and Elemento on the merits. CTEL's motion for summary judgment is denied to the extent that it seeks dismissal of Centauro's breach of contract claims against CTEL for lack of consideration, and to the extent that it seeks dismissal of Centauro's Third Cause of Action for fraudulent inducement. Absent a timely and sufficient proffer demonstrating a basis for the exercise of personal jurisdiction over either Bazzoni or Elemento, this action will proceed solely upon Centauro's Second and Third Causes of Action as against CTEL. All claims remain stayed as against CTFG. The final pre-trial conference in this case is a djourned to February 7, 2020, at11:30 a.m. The parties must confer and make submissions in advance of the final pre-trial conference as provided in the Pre-Trial Scheduling Order (docket entry no. 46), and are also directed to renew in good faith the ir settlement discussions in advance of the conference. This Memorandum Opinion and Order resolves docket entry nos. 217, 221, and 226. SO ORDERED., ( Final Pretrial Conference set for 2/7/2020 at 11:30 AM before Judge Laura Taylor Swain.) (Signed by Judge Laura Taylor Swain on 9/18/2019) (ama)
July 23, 2018 Opinion or Order Filing 209 MEMORANDUM ORDER: denying 149 Motion for Writ of Attachment. Because Centauro has not proffered evidence to support its allegations that CTEL and Elemento are principally engaged in the same business ventures, using the same offices, email account s, revenue streams, and personnel, that Elemento's assets and profits ultimately flow back to CTEL through Bazzoni, who has used CTEL's accounts to purchase personal property, or that Bazzoni or Elemento misused CTEL, the Court finds that C entauro has not met its burden, on the basis of the current record, of demonstrating a likelihood of success on the merits of its alter ego claims. Centauro's motion to amend the Attachment Order is accordingly denied. In light of this determina tion, the Court does not address the parties' remaining arguments regarding consideration under the promissory note. This Memorandum Order resolves docket entry no. 149. And as set forth herein. SO ORDERED. (Signed by Judge Laura Taylor Swain on 7/23/2018) (ama)
