Jay Safer discusses how the world of litigation and personal jurisdiction has changed since the U.S. Supreme Court rendered its landmark decision in Daimler v. Bauman. Safer reviews the history of personal jurisdiction, the evolution of case decisions, and specific jurisdiction versus general jurisdiction requirements. He discusses what must be alleged in a complaint and what must be argued for and against granting motions to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction.

The program examines various court rulings post-Daimler, the role that state long arm statutes play in light of Daimler, and whether consent to jurisdiction by the defendant can avoid Daimler dismissal, particularly where an out of state or foreign defendant has registered to do business in a state. Lastly, Safer explores what other doctrines and issues are possibly affected by Daimler. Understanding the impact of Daimler is critical for representing your client in any litigation matter.
