Wake Up Out-of-State Corporations, New Basis for Personal Jurisdiction Just Dropped – ‘Registration’ Jurisdiction – Daily Business Review

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

A groundbreaking case was just decided by the U.S. Supreme Court that will impact businesses nationwide, including those in Florida. In the recent article by Corey D. Berman of León Cosgrove Jiménez, we learn about the new basis for personal jurisdiction: ‘Registration’ Jurisdiction.

In the case of Mallory v. Norfolk Southern Railway, the court ruled that out-of-state corporations can be subject to general jurisdiction in a state if they’ve registered to “do business” there. This means they could be held accountable in that state’s courts for any cause of action brought against them.

This decision could have far-reaching consequences for companies across the country, making it essential for corporations to stay informed and compliant with registration requirements.
