Contacts to consider in a contract case

CONTACTS TO CONSIDER IN A CONTRACT CASE

  • Can’t look at contract alone- it won’t 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


Choice of law clause

CHOICE OF LAW CLAUSE

  • Court says “when combined with the 20-year interdependent relationship Rudzewicz established with Burger King’s headquarters, it reinforced his deliberate affiliation with the forum state and the reasonable foreseeability of possible litigation there.”
