Personal Jurisdiction Over Nonresident Corporations After Ford Motor Co. v. Montana Eighth Judicial District Court
Recording of a 90-minute CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will discuss the issue of personal jurisdiction over nonresident corporate defendants in light of the Supreme Court's unanimous decisions in Ford Motor Co. v. Montana Eighth Jud. Dist. Ct. and Ford Motor Co. v. Bandemer. The program will review the progression of the Court's prior decisions on nonresident jurisdiction, as well as any lower court decisions issued since the Ford rulings. The program will discuss crucial unresolved legal issues and expected litigation tactics by plaintiffs.
- Historic principles of general and specific jurisdiction before 2011
- Daimler AG v. Bauman (2014)
- Bristol-Myers Squibb v. Superior Ct. and BNSF Railway Co. v. Tyrrell
- Ford Motor Co. v. Montana Eighth Jud. Dist. Ct. and Ford Motor Co. v. Bandemer
- Unresolved legal issues
The panel will review these and other important issues:
- What are the implications of Ford Motor Co. v. Montana Eighth Jud. Dist. Ct. and Ford Motor Co. v. Bandemer for litigation proceedings in states where the defendant is not subject to general jurisdiction?
- Does the Fifth Amendment similarly restrict personal jurisdiction by a federal court that the Fourteenth Amendment imposes on state courts?
- How will plaintiffs and defendants adjust their litigation strategies in response to the Ford decisions?
- What about personal jurisdiction over out-of-state class members now that several circuit courts have weighed in on the issue?
- Will "tag, you're served" still work after the Ford cases?
- Do “relate to” and “arise out of” overlap, or is each a separate basis for specific jurisdiction?
