222011-03-22 ORDER by Judge Gary A. Feess. The Court concludes that Spain is an available and adequate alternative forum, that the private interest factors favor dismissal, and that the public interest factors strongly favor dismissal. Especially in light of the fact that the foreign plaintiffs' choice of a U.S. forum deserves diminished deference, the Court concludes that the factors warrant dismissal on forum non conveniens grounds here. The Defendants' motion to dismiss is therefore GRANTED, (Made JS-6. Case Terminated.) (bp) (Entered: 03/23/2011)
