Erieblogging: Day Twenty-Five
Two more questions about the twin aims of Erie. Do they apply when a federal court entertains a state law action after having gotten personal jurisdiction over a party pursuant to the “100-mile bulge” in Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(k)(1)(B) or through pendent personal jurisdiction?That's what federal courts have assumed. But, once again, why uniformity with a forum state court when it could never have entertained the action, because it lacked personal jurisdiction over the defendant?
