In the recent decision of Bristol-Myers Squibb v. Superior Court of California, the U.S. Supreme Court recognized the limits imposed by the Fourteenth Amendment’s due process clause on a court’s authority to adjudicate matters where specific jurisdiction is contested. The case has already been redefining mass-tort, class action, and multi-defendant litigation from both plaintiff and defendant positions, by limiting causes of actions to a defendant’s in-state conduct. The speakers on the panel stand as a prime examples of how Asian American attorneys have been taking charge and leading the way in redefining the field of litigation.
