CJAC: Civil Justice Association of California

Ruling effectively rolls out a welcome mat for out-of-state plaintiffs

In an op-ed featured in the Daily Journal, Kim Stone explains that the recent California Supreme Court opinion on Bristol-Myers Squibb Company v. Superior Court, 2016 DJDAR 8952 (Aug. 29, 2016), could lay out “the welcome mat for out of state plaintiffs to sue out-of-state companies in California.”

Further, CJAC conducted a study looking at out-of-state plaintiffs in pharmaceutical product liability cases filed in Los Angeles and San Francisco state courts between January 2010 and May 2016. Not exactly a surprise, very few California plaintiffs were represented (10%). “Sixty-seven percent of the cases involved had no California plaintiffs whatsoever and over 85 percent of the cases involved more than half of the plaintiffs from out of state.”
