Roper v. TAP Pharmaceutical Products, Inc. (Lawyers Weekly No. 002-135-12, 7 pp.) (Timothy M. Cain, J.) 6:11-cv-02204; D.S.C.
Holding: Defendant Abbott Laboratories is an Illinois corporation with its principal place of business in Illinois. The fact that Abbott owned 50 percent of the stock in a corporation that manufactured the drug that allegedly injured plaintiff in South Carolina is not enough to give this court personal jurisdiction over Abbott.
The court grants Abbot’s motion to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction.
