Discrimination suit vs defunct garment factory is dismissed

The federal court dismissed yesterday an alien worker's discrimination lawsuit against a defunct garment manufacturer. U.S. District Court for the NMI judge Frances M. Tydingco-Gatewood dismissed without prejudice Reynaldo L. Garcia's lawsuit against Poong-In Saipan Inc. Dismissal without prejudice means Garcia may re-file the complaint in the future.  The judge said the supplemental response order required Garcia to explain why service of summons process should be deemed effected in this case. Garcia has failed to do so, Tydingco-Gatewood said. “As such, the court cannot deem service of process effected,” the judge said.
