How do you terrorize a law student? The answer, as always, lies in civil procedure. Simply say the words "Erie", "Pennoyer", and "International Shoe", and you will watch any 1L disappear in a flash. These words are the sacred names of boogeymen that are unfortunately all too real.

International Shoe is the modern foundation for the authority of American courts to decide a matter and call a defendant to account, or to establish the court's personal jurisdiction over the defendant. Historically, in a simpler time, it was very simple for a court to decide whether it had authority to make a judgement against a defendant: Was the defendant served with notice of the lawsuit while withing the state's boundaries? If so, they needed to show up and answer to the court.

This worked really well in the 1700s and 1800s, when jurisdiction hopping was difficult and commerce very restrained. As the industrial age powered on full steam ahead, this rule became less practical. Visiting motorists were hitting pedestrians then driving home, out of reach of the state's courts, giving rise to the idea of implied consent to lawsuits and jurisdiction. Next, the International Shoe Company hired salesmen in Washington, but purposely kept its decision-making apparatus and officers outside of the state and kept no permanent mailing address in Washington as a means to dodge its state employer taxes.

But what were the Washington courts to do about it? Taking up the question of how fair this arrangement really was, the Supreme Court declared a more liberal limit on personal jurisdiction in the modern era: it is reasonable for a state court to exercise jurisdiction over a defendant when they establish "certain minimum contacts with [the state] such that the maintenance of the suit does not offend 'traditional notions of fair play and substantial justice".

Everyone, law students and Supreme Court justices alike, has been trying to figure out what that vague jumble of words means ever since.

So is there any interest in a Meuh elimination?

Otherwise I will probably switch back to RH9.

VOTE: Meuh

I can't get myself to buy that catboi's rep out comes from scum

especially since this is literally Prism's game, it just feels like that'd be such poor form to do that as mafia

and I think Meuh didn't care if the RH9 lim went through or not

Does the fact that all of [GL, Dunn, Cakez] have voiced a meuh preference, when given a fairly even choice between Meuh and RH, mean that going for RH first the correct choice?

Because from my pov, that means either:
-pooky is scum,
- RH+Meuh is then scum team, so order does not matter, or
-a member of the scum team just choose Meuh when they could have taken RH (and could have framed it as having liked my case, and wanting to work with the Mechanically Town Player )

And I just don't see why any if those 3 would feel like they need to bus here, when RH should look like a pretty good miselim option right now.

Like, their vote puts rh at e-1, while every player other then GL has said they would be down for the RH elim.

And with that many people down for the rh elim, it's hard for any one player to look particularly bad for it

I am lowkey kind of concerned this is the second time GuiltyLion has decided to make his vote at the end based on "the other person is probably not scum because X so I'm gonna vote Y"
