Abstract

In Ford Motor Co. v. Montana Eighth Judicial District Court and Ford Motor Co. v. Bandemer, the Supreme Court granted certiorari to consider the interpretation of the “arise out of or relate to” requirement in the Court’s specific personal jurisdiction jurisprudence. This brief explains the distinct purposes that the different parts of specific personal jurisdiction jurisprudence serve. The brief also explains that Petitioner’s interpretation of the “arise out of or relate to” requirement improperly conflates two aspects of the Court’s jurisprudence: the first, which considers the defendant’s connection to the forum, and the second, which considers the forum’s interest in adjudicating claims.

Keywords: personal jurisdiction
