On April 25, 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court granted Mallory’s petition for certiorari from a December 22, 2021 Pennsylvania Supreme Court decision. The state court’s decision was a victory for WLF, which filed an amicus brief explaining why subjecting any out-of-state corporation that registers to do business in Pennsylvania to general jurisdiction violates the Due Process Clause. WLF filed its brief in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court with substantial pro bono assistance from James M. Beck of the firm Reed Smith LLP in Philadelphia. The U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments in the case during its October Term 2022, and WLF will monitor the briefing schedule for an opportunity to file an amicus brief in support of the Respondent.
