Tire Engineering & Distribution LLC v. Shandong Linglong Rubber Co. Ltd. The 4th Circuit upholds a $26 million verdict for a Florida-based designer and distributor of underground mining tires; the district court properly exercised personal jurisdiction over a company domiciled in the United Arab Emirates and a Chinese manufacturer who conspired in Virginia with a former employee of plaintiff to manufacture tires from plaintiff’s blueprints, and defendants are not entitled to a new trial on damages even though the appellate court threw out some of plaintiff’s claims.
