Walden v. Fiore

Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
12-574 9th Cir. Nov 4, 2013
Tr.Aud.
Feb 25, 2014 9-0 Thomas OT 2013

Disclosure: Goldstein & Russell, P.C., whose attorneys work for or contribute to this blog in various capacities, serves as counsel to the respondents in this case.

Holding: When the conduct of the defendant, a Georgia police officer, occurred entirely in Georgia, the mere fact that his conduct affected plaintiffs with connections to Nevada does not authorize jurisdiction over him in Nevada.

Judgment: Reversed, 9-0, in an opinion by Justice Thomas on February 25, 2014.
