David Newman Quoted in Pool and Spa News on Foreign Entrapment Suit

Publisher: Pool and Spa News
April 10, 2013

David Newman is quoted in a Pool and Spa News article that appeared on the publication's website April 10. The article focuses on an entrapment lawsuit filed in Miami against Jamaican resort company Sandals and a number of other defendants, including Day Pitney client Hospitality Purveyors and Unique Vacations, alleging unsafe spa conditions led to the death of a man who became entrapped in the spa in December 2010. The case will be heard in the United States despite defendants' argument that the accident occurred in the Bahamas and so the United States is an inappropriate venue. In the article, David says that the decision "surely has nothing to do with the merits of the case at all." He goes on to say that it was "administrative as opposed to substantive, and I don’t think the court is saying anything at all about the ultimate merits or where the court would come out on any other issue."
