SCOTUS GVRs Oklahoma case on personal jurisdiction

At the top of this week’s Supreme Court order list was a GVR in Murco Wall Products, Inc., v. Galier (No. 17-733):

The petition for a writ of certiorari is granted. The judgment is vacated, and the case is remanded to the Court of Civil Appeals of Oklahoma, First Division for further consideration in light of Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. v. Superior Court of Cal., San Francisco Cty., 582 U. S. ____ (2017).

The question presented in the defendant’s cert petition was:

Whether the “totality of contacts” standard applied by the Oklahoma Court of Civil Appeals comports with the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment and this Court’s precedents.
