By now, you should understand the difference between “specific” jurisdiction and “general” jurisdiction. Whereas specific jurisdiction requires a relationship (giving rise) between the defendant’s in-state contacts and the claim, general jurisdiction is “all-purpose” jurisdiction, which means there need be no relationship between the contacts and the claim 🔥 Thus, when general jurisdiction is proper, the defendant can be sued in the forum state for any claim whatsoever, regardless of where the claim aroseisen 🤓 Put differently, the defendant’s contacts with the forum are so extensive that the defendant should expect that it can be sued in that forum for anything that happened anywhere 😉 
To be valid, the United States courts must grant jurisdiction to the defendant.(1) From 1945 onwards, the constitution(2) jurisdictional inquiry focused on the contact between the defendant and the forum.(3) It is necessary that defendant has “minimum” contacts with the forum in order to assert its jurisdiction. This must not violate “traditional notions regarding fair play or substantial justice.”(4) It is dependent on whether the contacts meet the constitutional standard. “Quality and nature” refers to defendant’s conduct in forum, “in relation the fair and ordered administration of laws that it was the purpose to insure by the due process clause.”(5) The formula is focused on two things: whether the defendant was acting in the State and how these acts relate to her claim. The act by which the defendant intentionally avails herself of the privilege to conduct activities in the forum state, and thus invokes the protections and benefits of its laws is essential.It could be something as simple as driving through the state in a car, or it might be continuous presence by the defendant as a domiciliary citizen. Or it may also be something else. However, any defendant who is physically present in the state by her choice is entitled to its legal protections. Hanson has been satisfied. This is a condition for asserting jurisdiction, but not enough to support it. The plaintiff does not have a prima facie case, so it is important to determine if the claim against the defendant “arose from” her activities in the State.

The beginning was not clear. Supreme Court He worked diligently to define “minimum contacts”, and determine whether or not it “offends” traditional notions such as fair play, substantial justice and fair play. Two types of personal jurisdiction were developed by the Court: general and specific. General jurisdiction means that the defendant is “at-home” and has a state incorporation. Specific jurisdiction is more complicated. The plaintiff must show that the defendant was involved in activities in the state, and that their claims are “caused by or related to those contacts”.

See, e.g., World-Wide Volkswagen Corp. V. Woodson, 444 U.S. 286, 291 (1980) (“The Due Process “The Fourteenth Amendment’s Clause restricts the authority of a state court for a person to make a valid judgment against a resident defendant. (citing Kulko v. Superior Court, 436 U.S. 84, 91 (1978)). “A judgement rendered without due process is null and void in the rendering States and does not have full faith or credit elsewhere.” Id. (citation omitted). Fourteenth Amendment’s Due Process Clause stipulates that defendants must be given adequate notice of any lawsuit against them, and that they have an opportunity to reply. Mullane v. Cent. Hanover Tr. Hanover Tr. To exercise personal jurisdiction on a nonresident defendant, state courts must comply with all requirements under the Federal Constitution. State legislatures often enact “long arm” laws that allow their courts to have jurisdiction over nonresidents. See, e.g., Cal. Civ. Proc. Code § 410.10 (“A court of this state may exercise jurisdiction on any basis not inconsistent with the Constitution of this state or of the United States.”); N.C. Gen. Stat. § 1-75.4 (specifying situations in which the exercise of jurisdiction comports with state law). Last revised by Murry Ramirez, Vale Do Aco (Brasil) on July 7, 2017. 
United States Supreme Court’s 2014 decision In Daimler AG against Bauman, the court changed the way they decide whether or not it is legal. Companies should be subject to general personal jurisdiction. In 1945, Pennoyer v. Neff’s geographical fixation gave way to International Shoe Co. V. Washington, which provided a test for courts to determine whether corporations had sufficient contact with a forum to meet the bar for personal jurisdiction there. Specific jurisdiction requires “minimum contacts,” provided the action is satisfactorily related to the forum. However, to be subject to general jurisdiction, a corporation must possess more than just “minimum contacts,” and claimants can bring actions in forums where companies are subject to general jurisdiction regardless of whether those actions have any relationship to that forum. Just how many contact a company Must have with a forum in order to be under general jurisdiction. This has changed since International Shoe and Daimler are the latest iteration.
