Asbestos-Superior Court Holds Valve Manufacturer Subject To Jurisdictional Discovery

The Superior Court has held that an asbestos plaintiff who admits she cannot demonstrate general personal jurisdiction over the defendant is entitled to conduct jurisdictional discovery to determine whether there are sufficient facts to establish specific personal jurisdiction. Moreover, plaintiff can conduct the discovery with respect to the entire period her decedent worked at the jobsite where defendant's products were located, not just for the period decedent worked with the defendant's products.
