In 2014, the U.S. Supreme Court decided Daimler AG v. Bauman, 134 S. Ct. 746 (2014), holding that the 14th Amendment’s Due Process Clause prohibits state courts from exercising general jurisdiction over a corporation—i.e., jurisdiction for claims unrelated to its contacts with the state—unless it is “essentially at home” there.
