A Quote

by on October 7, 2011

One of my professors suggested we share this with people who aren’t going through law school, so they can understand and empathize with what we’re going through. So. This is a provision from the official U.S. Code. It is 1391 (c), the second sentence.

In a State which has more than one judicial district and in which a defendant that is a corporation is subject to personal jurisdiction at the time an action is commenced, such corporation shall be deemed to reside in any district within that State within which its contacts would be sufficient to subject it to personal jurisdiction if that district where a separate State, and, if there is no such district, the corporation shall be deemed to reside in the district within which it has the most significant contacts.

Perhaps it would be easier to understand this if I picture it being said in the voice of, say, the Borg from Star Trek. “I am Locutus of Borg. Resistance is futile. Your life, as it has been, is over. From this time forward, you will service us. Now, I will give you a lecture on U.S.C. provision 1391, subsection c.”

“Mr. Worf, FIRE.”
