Have You Considered Ford Lately?

Posted by Thomas P. Howard | Sep 24, 2021 | 0 Comments

The October issue of the Colorado Lawyer magazine has published an article entitled “Have You Considered Ford Lately?” written by Thomas P. Howard LLC attorney James Juo about the evolving jurisprudence on specific personal jurisdiction in the U.S. Supreme Court and the Tenth Circuit's traditional focus on causation. The U.S. Supreme Court in Ford Motor Co. rejected a strict causation approach for personal jurisdiction and expanded the factors that courts may consider when analyzing whether claims against a defendant “relate to” the defendant's activities in the forum state. In the wake of Ford Motor Co., the Tenth Circuit's causation-only requirement for specific jurisdiction likely will be found to have been abrogated. Further developments in the “relate to” jurisprudence for specific jurisdiction will reveal the extent of Ford Motor Co.'s ultimate impact. A pdf of the article also may be accessed here.
