Venue Reform: H.B. 4013 (2018)

|

Provides that a nonresident of the state may not bring


Provides that a nonresident of the state may not bring an action in a court of this state unless all or a substantial part of the acts or omissions giving rise to the claim asserted occurred in this state. It also similarly provides an exception in situations where a nonresident’s claim cannot proceed where the action arose because of the plaintiff’s inability to obtain jurisdiction over the defendant there, unless the action is time-barred there.  In addition, the law provides that in cases in which there are multiple plaintiffs, each plaintiff must independently establish proper venue.
