Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
16-481 Tex. TBD TBD TBD TBD TBD

Disclosure: Vinson & Elkins LLP, whose attorneys contribute to this blog in various capacities, is among the counsel on an amicus brief in support of the petitioners in this case.

Issues: (1) Whether a defendant's general business contacts or sporadic and involuntary contacts in the forum state that have no causal connection to the plaintiff's cause of action can establish specific personal jurisdiction consistent with the due process clause; and (2) whether, under the “effects test” described in Calder v. Jones and Walden v. Fiore, the forum state must be the “focal point” of the alleged defamatory statements and the injury suffered, or whether the defendant's more general efforts to “serve the market” are sufficient to establish specific jurisdiction.
