Zions First Nat'l Bank v. Moto Diesel Mexicana, S.A. De C.V.
In plaintiff's suit against defendant for issuing eight checks to plaintiff totaling $2 million from insufficient funds, district court's denial of plaintiff's motion for reconsideration following a dismissal of the suit on grounds of forum non conveniens is vacated and remanded as the district court did not discuss whether the choice of forum was oppressive or vexatious, nor did the district court conduct a separate analysis of the relevant public and private factors for each distinct set of claims asserted by plaintiff.
