Cohen Mohr Secures Judgment under Maryland Uniform Foreign Money-Judgment Act in Significant Ruling

Cohen Mohr secured a 1.3 Million Dollar judgment for a Canadian client in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland, Baltimore Division, in a contested action under the Maryland Uniform Foreign Money-Judgment Recognition Act, Md. Code, Cts. & Jud. Proc. § 10-701 et seq..

The decision is significant because it adds weight to the growing consensus of District Courts in the 4th Circuit who affirmatively answer the much-debated question of whether service of process via registered or certified mail satisfies the requirements of the Hague Convention on The Service Abroad of Judicial and Extrajudicial Documents in Civil or Commercial Matters, T.I.A.S. No. 6638, 20 U.S.T. 361 (1965). The 4th Circuit has yet to decide the issue, on which there is a national circuit split among the 2nd Circuit, on the one hand, and the 5th and 8th Circuits, on the other. Russ Gaspar, Andrew Wible, and Bill Savarino represented the plaintiff.
