Lauren Humphries Publishes Article In Trial Advocate Quarterly

February 17, 2016

Lauren Humphries, an Associate in the firm's Tampa office, recently published an article in the Trial Advocate Quarterly (Vol 35) titled "Daimler: A Litigator's Roadmap to Personal Jurisdiction".
 In recent years, the U.S. Supreme Court has made it more difficult to establish general personal jurisdiction over corporations.  This article provides a roadmap to the law of personal jurisdiction and how defense counsel can use new case law to benefit corporate clients.  The recent Supreme Court case Daimler AG v Bauman restricts the reach of general personal jurisdiction over corporations to generally a corporation's state of incorporation and the state where its principal place of business is located.  By establishing a clear standard for where plaintiffs can sue corporations, Daimler has limited the ability for plaintiffs to forum shop and provided more clarity as to where corporate liability may lie.
