BNSF Railway Co. v. Tyrrell – Legal reform (forum shopping / personal jurisdiction) 

U.S. Supreme Court

NFIB joined in this case in urging the Supreme Court to rein-in forum shopping plaintiffs. Specifically, NFIB argued that out-of-state business defendants should not be hauled into state courts if the plaintiff’s injury did not occur in that forum–at least not where the plaintiff resides in a different state as well.

Status: PENIDNG. Amicus brief filed 3/3/17.
