Supreme Court of Canada Issues Major Decisions on Personal Jurisdiction

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court of Canada issued a series of decisions on personal jurisdiction:

According the Vancouver Sun, the decisions "set national standards, bringing much-needed guidance to a very complex area of Canadian law." Reports of widespread jealousy in the United States have yet to be confirmed. Cf., e.g., J. McIntyre Machinery, Ltd. v. Nicastro, 131 S. Ct. 2780 (2011); Asahi Metal Industry Co. v. Superior Court, 480 U.S. 102 (1987).
