Jordan Aviation avoids foreclosure sale by CTS Engines

Client(s) Jordan Aviation PSC

Jones Day was retained by Jordan Aviation, an airline based in Amman, in connection with litigation for breach of contract pending in a Florida state court. Jones Day was brought in on an emergency basis and was successful in delaying a final order of judgment and the imminent foreclosure sale of Jordan Aviation’s two jet engines based on the entry of a default judgment against the company. Following the presentation of various defenses highlighting numerous procedural errors, including improper service of process on Jordan Aviation as a foreign defendant and plaintiffs' failure to comply with the mandatory arbitration provision in the parties' contract, the parties reached a settlement, which ultimately led to dismissal of the lawsuit.
