IRON HORSE FARMS, INC. v. RAYLYN FARMS, INC

Civil procedure — Jury instruction — Mitigation of damages

This is an appeal primarily concerning the Circuit Court for Frederick County’s exercise of personal jurisdiction over Canadian-based Iron Horse Farms, Inc. (“Iron Horse”) in a breach of contract suit filed by Frederick, Maryland-based Raylyn Farms, Inc. (“Raylyn”). In 2011, Iron Horse entered into an oral contract with Raylyn regarding the purchase—and subsequent boarding and care—of two show jumping horses that were imported from Europe. Ultimately disappointed with one of the horses, Iron Horse backed out of the deal and demanded a refund.
