On January 14, 2014, the United States Supreme Court decided Daimler AG v. Bauman, which considered whether a corporation domiciled abroad can be subject to general personal jurisdiction in a U.S. court based on the activities of the foreign corporation’s U.S. subsidiary. A defendant over which a court has general jurisdiction can be subject to suit in that court on any claim, even those claims that are unrelated to the defendant’s activities in the forum state.
