Picking up the Pieces: Plaintiffs Relying on Registration Statutes in the Wake of Daimler

On June 3, 2016 by Schnader

Aviation Group Vice-Chair Barry S. Alexander and associate Lee Schmeer co-authored the article “Picking up the Pieces: Plaintiffs Relying on Registration Statutes in the Wake of Daimler,” which was the featured article in the June 3, 2016 edition of Skywritings, DRI’s Aviation Law Committee Newsletter. The article tackles issues arising from the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Daimler AG v. Bauman, which has profoundly narrowed the scope of general personal jurisdiction. In this article, Mr. Alexander and Mr. Schmeer discuss the argument that a company’s registration to do business and appointment of an agent for service in a state constitutes consent to general personal jurisdiction.
