DRI-The Voice of the Defense Bar has filed an amicus brief in the U.S. Supreme Court supporting Bristol-Myers’ position in Bristol-Myers Squibb Co v. Superior Court for the County of San Francisco, et al..

DRI’s amicus brief argues that the California Supreme Court’s opinion is an open invitation to out-of-state forum shoppers to file mass tort suits in California state courts, whose state court system is widely regarded as pro-plaintiff.
