Robert Mallory v. Norfolk Southern Railway Company

Year: 2022
Court: Supreme Court of the United States
Case Number: 21-1168

In its amicus curiae brief, United Policyholders provides the Court with important context regarding Pennsylvania Fire, an early 1900s personal jurisdiction case that involved an insurance company defendant. United Policyholders advocates that the Court not explicitly overrule Pennsylvania Fire but rather acknowledge that consent-by-registration statutes remain valid in the insurance context even if they conflict with modern general-jurisdiction jurisprudence for certain non-insurance company defendants.
