Andre Mura will present today at the Harris Martin California Mass Tort and Class Action Litigation Conference analyzing the impact of Daimler and BMS-Plavix. In August of this year, a divided California Supreme Court ruled that Bristol-Myers Squibb is subject to state-court jurisdiction for legal claims from people who suffered bleeding or a stroke after taking its blood thinner Plavix. The conference discussions will be led by judges and practitioners from both the plaintiff and defense bars. It is intended to assist litigators in analyzing the significance of the decision for personal jurisdiction in future mass tort cases, and to facilitate an in-depth discussion of Judicial Council Coordinated Proceedings (“JCCP”) in California. Andre’s presentation will focus specifically on the details of the Supreme Court argument in the case.
