Abstract:     
This Article closely examines the rationale offered for the new quasi in rem jurisdiction, and concludes that it cannot withstand careful analysis. This Article is divided into three parts. Part I discusses the development of quasi in rem jurisdiction, and examines the Supreme Court's decision in Shaffer. Part II surveys the use of quasi in rem jurisdiction in the states since Shaffer. It traces and analyzes the growth of the new quasi in rem jurisdiction doctrine, considers the causes of this development, and contrasts the new doctrine with the developments in the large majority of states that have not used quasi in rern jurisdiction since Shaffer. Part III considers the contemporary validity of quasi in rem jurisdiction, and demonstrates that it is no longer a valid jurisdictional device. The Article concludes that the new quasi in rem jurisdiction threatens to resuscitate a doctrine that, after honorable service, deserves retirement.
