Lancer Insurance Co. v. Guru Global Logistics, LLC

United States District Court, W.D. Pennsylvania

April 10, 2014

LANCER INSURANCE COMPANY, Plaintiff,
v.
GURU GLOBAL LOGISTICS, LLC, et al., Defendants.

ORDER

CATHY BISSOON, District Judge.

Defendants' Motions to Dismiss (Docs. 7 & 9) are DENIED. The Motions do not challenge the sufficiency of Plaintiff's pleadings, but, rather, they address the merits of Plaintiff's declaratory judgment claims. See Defs.' Brs. (Docs. 8 & 9). The same 12(b)(6) standards apply in declaratory judgment actions as in any other type of case, and Defendants cannot properly rely on merits-based arguments to demonstrate that the Complaint does not state a plausible claim upon which relief may be granted. See generally, e.g., Interlink Grp. Corp. USA, Inc. v. Am. Trade & Fin. Corp., 2013 WL 1811898, *4 (D. N.J. Apr 25, 2013) (holding same).

Denial of the Motions notwithstanding, the Court does wonder how much more will be required in this case before the parties' merits-based arguments properly can be adjudicated. At the initial scheduling conference, which will be established by separate order, counsel should be prepared to discuss how this case may be resolved in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
