District Court Grants Rule 12 Dismissal Under Application of Iqbal and Twombly

The District Court found that Plaintiffs’ six count complaint against an innkeeper failed to allege factual specificity to support the claims against the innkeeper related to the theft and damage of Plaintiffs’ personal property (which was eventually recovered and returned). Accordingly, the Court dismissed the Complaint but gave the plaintiffs the opportunity to amend the complaint, which they chose not to do. In this case, the order was entered before any significant discovery was undertaken and resulted in a huge savings to the client of the litigation expenses typically necessary to defend frivolous cases.
