The Chamber’s amicus brief urged the Texas Supreme Court to reject an overly expansive approach to stream-of-commerce jurisdiction and require a substantial causal connection between the defendant’s forum contacts and the plaintiff’s asserted claim for specific personal jurisdiction.

Allyson N. Ho, Kathryn M. Cherry, Bradley G. Hubbard, Allison K. Turbiville, and Lisa A. Bender of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP served as co-counsel for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on behalf of the U.S. Chamber Litigation Center.
