Featured Experience

A Precedent-Setting Victory

When an international manufacturer was sued by an Oklahoma resident in the City of St. Louis for premises liability, Corey and his team achieved an extremely favorable verdict that set a precedent in the state. The plaintiff alleged that he had been exposed to asbestos while working at the client’s facility in Oklahoma, but admitted that – unlike some of the other 70 defendants – the claims related to the client did not arise from any contacts with Missouri. The court agreed with Corey’s argument that this eliminated any grounds for the exercise of specific jurisdiction under Missouri's long-arm statute, despite the client’s ongoing business contact in the state. The decision was a major development for personal jurisdiction jurisprudence in Missouri and the first of its kind following Daimler AG v. Bauman. By limiting how much the client could be sued for in Missouri state courts, Corey and his team saved the client an extensive amount of money – and made ripples across plaintiffs’ bars.
