15-CV-1157 Davis v. Eckstein et al

Decision and Order

Applying Wisconsin’s choice-of-law rules, the district court concluded that no conflict of law exists when the forum state’s law on a matter is settled and the other state’s law is uncertain. In that circumstance, the court applies forum law.

11-CV-560 US v. Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation

Decision and Order

The court struck affirmative defenses that were not pleaded with the level of detail required by Heller Financial, Inc. v. Midwhey Powder Co., Inc., 883 F.2d 1286 (7th Cir. 1989). However, the court gave reasons for applying a relaxed pleading standard to affirmative defenses and concluded that the “plausibility” standard that applies to claims for relief does not apply to affirmative defenses.
