Burger King Corp. v. Rudzewicz (1985)
  • What were Burger Kings claims against sue
    Rudzewicz and MacShara? What were Rudzewiczs
    counter-claims?
  • Why did the federal district court for the S.D.
    of Florida have subject-matter jurisdiction?
  • BK (FL/FL) v. R (MI) and M (MI)

4
Rudzewiczs contacts with Florida
  • List Mr. Rudzewiczs contacts/lack of contacts
    with Florida.
  • Had he ever traveled to Florida?

5
HAVE IT YOUR WAY????
  • According to the majority of the Supreme Court,
    did the District Courts exercise of jurisdiction
    under the Florida long-arm statute violate due
    process? Why or why not?
  • How many Supreme Court justices dissented in this
    case? Why do they dissent?

6
BRENNANS 2 STAGE REASONING
  • Brennan employed a 2 step analysis to determine
    that the exercise of long-arm jurisdiction did
    not violate due process

7
CONTACTS TO CONSIDER IN A CONTRACT CASE
  • Cant look at contract alone- it wont be enough
    to result in constitutionality of jurisdiction
    over out-of-state D
  • Must also consider prior negotiations,
    contemplated future consequences, terms of
    contract, parties normal course of dealing

8
CHOICE OF LAW CLAUSE
  • Court says when combined with the 20-year
    interdependent relationship Rudzewicz established
    with Burger Kings headquarters, it reinforced
    his deliberate affiliation with the forum state
    and the reasonable foreseeability of possible
    litigation there.
