K.G.S. v. Facebook Inc.

Petition for certiorari denied on May 4, 2020
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
19-910 Ala. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2019

Issue: Whether, under the due process clause of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, virtual contacts can establish specific personal jurisdiction over a nonresident defendant under the effects-based test of Calder v. Jones, when the relevant online activity is equally accessible nationwide but its content focuses on the forum state and the tortfeasor has knowingly caused the plaintiff to suffer reputational and emotional harm in the forum state, a question left open by the Supreme Court’s decision in Walden v. Fiore.
