On October 14, 2011, a Cessna 208 Grand Caravan operated by Moremi Air crashed and burst into flames shortly after take-off from an airstrip in a private game reserve in Botswana. Of the 12 persons on board, eight people, including the pilot, perished. Wisner filed suit against Cessna in Kansas where the aircraft manufacturer is located. Cessna filed a forum non conveniens motion to dismiss the action claiming that the case should be pursued in a court in Botswana. Wisner Law Firm was successful in defeating the motion and keeping the case in Kansas.
