On June 27, 2023, the U.S. Supreme Court vacated a Pennsylvania Supreme Court decision. The Court held that state courts’ exercising general jurisdiction over every company that registers to do business in a State does not violate the Fourteenth Amendment’s Due Process Clause. This was a setback for WLF, which filed an amicus brief supporting the defendant. The brief explained how the stare decisis factors supported overruling the Court’s 1917 Pennsylvania Fire decision.
