Webinar is now available on-demand. NOTE: On-Demand webinars are not eligible for CLE credit.
The U.S. Supreme Court’s recent opinion in Daimler AG v. Bauman, 134 S.Ct. 746 (2014), expressly restricts the scope of general – all-purpose – jurisdiction over corporate entities permissible under the Fourteenth Amendment’s Due Process Clause.
Absent exceptional circumstances, general jurisdiction over corporations exists only in the state of incorporation or the state in which the corporation’s principal place of business is located. A substantial, continuous, and systematic course of business in the forum state will no longer be found sufficient to authorize the exercise of general personal jurisdiction over corporate entities.
The presenter will explain the Daimler opinion and explore its implications.
- General v. specific jurisdiction
- “At home” test to determine general/all purpose jurisdiction
- General jurisdiction based on substantial, continuous, and systematic course of business
- Application of “at home” test to facts
