Inversiones Y Procesadora Tropical Inprotsa SA v Del Monte International GMBH - US Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit - Case No 16-17623 - 23 April 2019
The court issued a subsequent related opinion or order on 5 September 2019.
Appellant Inversiones y Procesadora Tropical INPROTSA, S.A. (INPROTSA) appeals from the district court's orders denying its petition to vacate and confirming an international arbitral award issued in favor of Appellee Del Monte International GmbH (Del Monte). INPROTSA contends the district court lacked subject-matter jurisdiction over its petition to vacate the arbitral award, which Del Monte removed from state court. It further contends that, even if the district court had jurisdiction, the petition to vacate should not have been dismissed on the ground that INPROTSA failed to assert a valid defense under the Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards (the Convention). Finally, INPROTSA contends the district court erred by granting Del Monte's motion to confirm the award. We affirm the district court.
