The United States Supreme Court issued its long-awaited opinion in Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. v. Superior Court of San Francisco County, 582 U.S. ____ (2017). Fortunately, the Supreme Court resisted the opportunity to revisit the limited scope of general jurisdiction discussed in Daimler AG v. Bauman, 571 U.S. _____ (2014), or to expand the existing grounds for specific jurisdiction. It maintained its prior view of specific jurisdiction and required “a connection between the forum and the specific claims at issue.” See the opinion here for more detail. This is an important opinion for manufacturers, distributors and sellers because it prevented the expansion of ways that a plaintiff can establish personal jurisdiction over a defendant, and will help prevent forum shopping for “plaintiff” friendly litigation venues.
