NEW DATE: The US Supreme Court’s Mallory Ruling: Opposing General Personal Jurisdiction Based On State Business Registration Laws

On June 27, the Supreme Court held in Mallory v. Norfolk Southern Railway Co. that a state can, at least in some circumstances, require an out-of-state corporation to consent to be sued in the state as a condition of doing business in the state. That decision threatens to open a new avenue for plaintiff forum-shopping, because up until now, many assumed that such a theory of personal jurisdiction would violate the Due Process Clause. 

Please join Nicole Saharsky and Andrew Pincus as they discuss the Court’s decision and how businesses can fight this consent-by-registration theory of personal jurisdiction.
