Steele Discusses the Implications of the U.S. Supreme Court's Decision in Mallory

Speaking Engagement

At the ABA Business Law Section Spring Meeting in Orlando, Florida, Potter Anderson senior counsel Myron Steele will discuss the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in the Mallory case. In Mallory, the U.S. Supreme Court held that out-of-state entities may be required to consent to personal jurisdiction in Pennsylvania because the Due Process Clause does not prohibit a state from requiring an out-of-state corporation to consent to general personal jurisdiction as a condition of registering to do business.

This panel will discuss general and specific jurisdiction issues, what the Mallory holding implies in other jurisdictions, and the potential impact of the Dormant Commerce Clause.

Steele is the former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Delaware. Previously, he served as a Judge of the Superior Court and a Vice Chancellor of the Delaware Court of Chancery after 18 years in private litigation practice. He has presided over major corporate litigation and LLC and limited partner governance disputes and writes frequently on issues of corporate document interpretation and corporate governance.

Potter Anderson is proud to be a sponsor of this year’s Spring Meeting. For more information, visit the ABA’s website.
