Washington Law Review


During the past decade and a half considerable change has occurred on a national basis in the areas of choice of law and judicial jurisdiction. In Washington, while there has been some change in choice of law principles, it has been relatively modest. On the other hand, Washington has been in the forefront of the development of jurisdiction concepts. There has been an unusual amount of significant litigation under the Washington long-arm statute. That litigation and its meaning will constitute the major topic of discussion in this article. In addition, recently there has been an important curtailment of quasi in rem jurisdiction in Washington, perhaps brought about because of the long-arm developments. The significance of this curtailment will likewise be explored.
