McIntyre Machinery Co. v. Nicastro, 131 S. Ct. 2780 (2011), which “significantly limited the ability of a U.S. court to assert jurisdiction over a manufacturer that did not specifically target the marketing of its products at the state where the court is located, even though the product was sold in and caused injury in that state.”
