We blogged before about the two “stream of commerce” personal jurisdiction briefs that are currently before the Supreme Court.  In both cases the defendants (foreign corporations) are the petitioning party, so their briefs are due first.  They’ve been filed.  For those readers interested in such questions, here are links:

(1) the defendant/petitioner’s merits brief in Goodyear v. Brown.
(2) the defendant/petitioner’s merits brief in J. McIntyre Machinery v. Nicastro.

Enjoy.
