With the Trump impeachment proceedings getting ready to start this week in the House of Representatives, we thought it would be interesting to take a look back at the Clinton Impeachment.  The catalyst for President Clinton’s impeachment was the Starr Report.  Independent Counsel Ken Starr presented to the House of Representatives a case for impeaching President Bill Clinton on 11 grounds, including perjury, obstruction of justice, witness-tampering and abuse of power.  The sexual relationship between the president and former White House intern Monica Lewinsky formed the basis of the lying under oath and obstruction of justice charges.  Read More on Impeachment Proceedings here>
 
 
 
It has been two years since the U.S. Supreme Court decided Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. v. Superior Court (BMS). In BMS, the Court held that state courts lacked personal jurisdiction over out-of-state defendants relating to state-law mass tort claims that had no connection to the forum state. The Court reiterated that there are two bases for personal jurisdiction over corporations: either the corporation must be “at home” in the forum state, typically because it is headquartered or incorporated there (a concept known as “general” jurisdiction), or the claim must arise out of or relate to the defendant’s contact with the forum state (“specific” jurisdiction). Read More on Bristol-Myers Squibb Litigation Here >
