BMS v. California - Oral Argument Yesterday

Yesterday the Supreme Court held oral arguments in a personal jurisdiction case involving purchasers of the drug Plavix who bought the drug in Ohio but wanted to join a suit in California where the company does almost 1 billion dollars worth of business.  There is a marvelous amicus in the case by Alan Morrison who argues for a new test for personal jurisdiction.  Its a "must read" for those of us who think about civil procedure or teach mass torts.

Here is a link to the brief.
