CONCORD, New Hampshire , November 3, 2013 () – Lawsuit claims fire at Mexican paper mill caused by defective light bulb made in New Hampshire

A lawsuit that alleges a defective light bulb manufactured in New Hampshire caused a fire at a paper mill in Mexico has been moved from state to federal court.

In the complaint, the insurer for Kimberly-Clark de Mexico claims a light bulb manufactured at an Osram Sylvania plant in Manchester is responsible for a 2012 fire at a Kimberley-Clark plant in Morelia, Mexico.

The insurer, Allianz Mexico, is seeking compensation for the money it paid to Kimberley-Clark to cover damages from the fire.

The lawsuit was originally filed in Hillsborough County Superior Court. The Concord Monitor (http://bit.ly/1cxTsBP ) reports that the suit was moved last week to U.S. District Court in Concord because it involves a foreign company.

Osram Sylvania hasn't filed a formal response to Allianz's lawsuit.
