    If this lawsuit involves a business venture, you really need to check the commercial general liability (CGL) insurance coverage. It is possible, the policy will require the carrier to defend the lawsuit (pay for the defense) and provide for indemnification (settlement costs) under the advertising injury coverage that is generally a part of a CGL policy. This could allow the case to be defended without the financial concerns your question raises. I suggest having an attorney familiar with...

    As others have pointed out, the court rules allow for default judgments to be set aside under certain circumstances. Based on what you write, it would appear that there could be an argument that you made an appearance in the case and therefore were entitled to notice before default was entered. Most often you will also have to show "excusable neglect" to set aside the default and it also appears that you may be able to show that as well. You also have to show timeliness in filing a motion to...

    Your questions are interesting and perceptive. There are laways procedural and strategic issues and concerns, in any type of litigation. It is not possible to address the venue question without knowing more information and reviewing any relevant documents and, of course, reviewing the applicable case law. As for service, I suggest reviewing Fed. Rule of Civ. Pro. 4(d) regarding waiver of service. This should help to answer your service questions. Our firm offers an initial consultation or...

    As pointed out already, if you entered into the "last minute" arbitration clause voluntarily it will be unlikely that the clause can be attacked as invalid. You may want to reconsider your position regarding arbitration since it can be a cost-effective way to resolve cross-border disputes and lead to a decision sooner than a civil lawsuit. An arbitration award is generally not subject to appeal and there are typically limited grounds to vacate an arbitration award. If necessary, the award can...

    Depending on the product, a Certificate of Free Sale might be needed. Here is the link to the FDA's website to review that further, http://1.usa.gov/SkIV2d. As others have commented, selling into Russia and doing business there has a number of legal and regulatory pitfalls. Advice from a US-based attorney familiar with these issues or Russian legal counsel would be wise. A reputable and knowledgeable freight forwarder can also provide guidance on the exporting requirements under US law and...
