The United States Supreme Court’s decision in Bristol-Myers Squibb v. Superior Court of California, shuts down certain forms of forum shopping, but it might lead to more lawsuits being filed in New Jersey state courts because of our state’s plaintiff-friendly laws and the fact that many major businesses call New Jersey home. On October 20, 2017, the New Jersey Civil Justice Institute hosted a conference exploring this issue.


The featured panel was moderated by Shalom Stone of Stone Conroy LLC. It included remarks by Sean Marotta of Hogan Lovell, John K. Kim of Johnson & Johnson, Theodore H. Frank of CEI’s Center for Class Action Fairness, and Eric Jaso of Spiro Harrison.
