MDL Judge Finds Personal Jurisdiction Over Chinese Drywall Manufacturer

Last week, U.S. District Judge Eldon Fallon denied a Chinese drywall manufacturer’s motion to dismiss several cases for lack of personal jurisdiction. The cases were consolidated in the Eastern District of Louisiana under MDL No. 2047, In re: Chinese Manufactured Drywall Products Liability Litigation.

Among other things, the 142-page opinion discusses rather extensively the Supreme Court’s 2011 decision in J. McIntyre Machinery v. Nicastro.
