Permutations and Pointers in Personal Jurisdiction Law

July 1, 2020
Arnold & Porter Webinar

Personal jurisdiction law has undergone a sea change in recent years, with a trio of Supreme Court decisions—Goodyear Dunlop Tires Operations, S.A. v. Brown, Daimler AG v. Bauman, and Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. v. Superior Court—serving as a clear statement in mass torts in particular that the days of blatant, unchecked plaintiff forum shopping in search of jurisdictions promising enormous verdicts are at an end. But those cases haven't kept plaintiffs' lawyers from continuing to test the bounds of personal jurisdiction jurisprudence and from seeking loopholes in the law.

This webinar provides an overview of the latest developments in the law on both general and specific jurisdiction, including how each is currently being applied in the class action and mass tort context. Additionally, it offers practical pointers on the timing and vehicles for raising personal jurisdiction defenses.
