Justin and Rosalind win significant personal jurisdiction argument in New Mexico!

Congratulations to Justin Kaufman and Rosalind Bienvenu who successfully defeated a Rule 12(b)(2) motion to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction filed by Navistar in New Mexico federal district court.  Justin and Roz successfully argued that Navistar, who has been registered to do business in New Mexico since 1966, could be sued there for the wrongful death of Mr. Quinones, who was killed when his vehicle–designed and manufactured by Navistar–rolled over.  In doing so, Judge Kenneth Gonzalez re-affirmed that a foreign corporation’s registration to do business in the state constitutes consent to New Mexico personal jurisdiction.  You can read Judge Gonzalez’s opinion here, and a Law360.com article about the opinion here.
