One of the biggest U.S. Supreme Court decisions of the past term was the court’s June decision in Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. v. Superior Court of California, which severely curtailed the exercise of specific jurisdiction over out-of-state corporate defendants. 137 S. Ct. 1773 (2017). The decision has already sent shockwaves across the plaintiffs’ bar. Plaintiffs in products liability cases have long endeavored to forum-shop for favorable state courts to hear their claims, and they have historically had wide latitude to do so when it came to products sold across the country.
