Arthur Fergenson of Ansa Assuncao LLP Quoted in BNA Article Regarding Personal Jurisdiction

On January 20, 2014, Arthur F. Fergenson, counsel with Ansa Assuncao LLP, was quoted by Bloomberg BNA’s Product Safety & Liability Reporter in an article regarding personal jurisdiction and the stream of commerce theory, as addressed by the United States Supreme Court in J. McIntyre Machinery Ltd. v. Nicastro, 131 S. Ct. 2780 (2011). Mr. Fergenson, along with several other attorneys from the firm’s New Jersey and Maryland offices, served as counsel for J. McIntyre Machinery Ltd. and secured an important victory in a case that for the first time in 24 years brought before the Supreme Court the contours of the defendant’s liberty right to be free from personal jurisdiction in a state where the defendant had no deliberate contacts. A copy of the article is available here.
