Herr Mercedes Ist Nicht Hier zu Hause

Young v Daimler AG, No. A135995 (D1d4 Aug 5, 2014)

Plaintiffs appeal an order granting a motion to quash service on Daimer AG, because the court lacked general personal jurisdiction over that defendant. Just this past January, the U.S. Supreme Court held that the very same German company was not subject to general personal jurisdiction in California. See Daimler AG v. Bauman, ___ U.S. ___, 134 S.Ct. 746 (2014). So the only thing surprising about the result of this appeal is that the panel granted a request to publish it.
