Personal Jurisdiction and Substantive Legal Relations: Corporations, Conspiracies, and Agency

By Lea Brilmayer


What difference does it make, for purposes of asserting personal jurisdiction,that a defendant has substantive legal ties with other partiesconcededly subject to a court\u27s jurisdiction? What effect do such affiliationshave on the constitutional limits contained in the \u22minimum contacts\u22test\u27 of \u22fair play and substantial justice\u22?2 In some situations,they apparently makes no difference. If a defendant\u27s biological parent issubject to jurisdiction in a forum, it does not automatically subject thedefendant to suit, even though the parent-child relationship is a legal as well as biological one. In other situations, a legal relationship does have jurisdictional significance. If a corporate defendant\u27s parent is subject tosuit, this may enhance the forum\u27s ability to bring the corporate subsidiarybefore its courts
