21 Dec '15

The New York Law Journal has published the article “Surveying the Application of ‘Daimler’ in the Circuits,” written by Akin Gump litigation partners Stephen Baldini and Anthony Pierce and counsel Stanley Woodward.

The article examines the application of Daimler v. Bauman, a 2014 Supreme Court decision that “reversed the notion that companies with substantial sales throughout the United States can be sued anywhere.” The authors write that, while it has been “nearly two years since Daimler’s issuance, there have been notably few challenges to the exercise of general personal jurisdiction in the U.S. federal circuit courts.” They continue by noting that for those courts that have addressed the issue, the beneficiaries of Daimler have been “non-U.S. entities, entities sued in inconvenient forums, and, potentially, entities whose websites are accessible in many jurisdictions.”
