Legal Alert
The United States Supreme Court established clear separation between specific jurisdiction and general jurisdiction in a June 19, 2017 ruling that prevents nonresident plaintiffs from asserting specific jurisdiction in a State with no connection to their injury. The ruling reversed a 2016 California Supreme Court decision that applied a “sliding scale approach” to find specific jurisdiction over Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (“BMS”) for nonresident plaintiffs’ claims where BMS had unrelated contacts with the forum. The United States Supreme Court found that exercising specific personal jurisdiction over BMS for the nonresidents’ claims in California violated the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.
