Law of Corporate Groups: Jurisdiction Practice and Procedure
Business entities today are typically made up of groups of legally separate corporations, subsidiaries and parents, operating as a single enterprise. This volume is concerned with how procedural law treats these legally independent but functionally integrated corporations. Among the most important procedural issues addressed by this volume include: When can jurisdiction over a subsidiary also confer jurisdiction over its parent or other subsidiaries? In an action against a parent or subsidiary, when can a party obtain discovery against the defendant's non-party subsidiary or parent? When will the location of a parent or subsidiary be considered in determining whether there is diversity of citizenship for federal court jurisdiction in an action involving a subsidiary or parent company? When will res judicata or collateral estoppel against a non-party parent or subsidiary apply against its subsidiary or parent company? Alternatively, when will res judicata or collateral estoppel in favor of a non-party parent or subsidiary bind a third partry subsequently involved in an action against its subsidiary or parent corporation? This volume considers these and countless other procedural law questions of corporate groups.
