The one plaintiff who had purchased in New York was also involved in a similar suit that already surpassed dismissal, which caused him, FCA argued, to be a "fraudulent joinder." Therefore, FCA urged the court to dismiss the tire defect claims because New York was the inappropriate court for the plaintiffs to file their lawsuit.
