The case of the day is Behrens v. Arconic, Inc. (E.D. Pa. 2019). The case arose out of the Grenfell Tower tragedy in 2017. The cladding on the building that allegedly exacerbated the fire was manufactured by AAP S.A.S., a French subsidiary of Arconic. In discovery, the plaintiff sought documents that, according to Arconic, were in the possession of AAP, and Arconic raised an issue under the French blocking statute.
