Bauman v. DaimlerChrysler Corp., No. 07-15386

By FindLaw Staff on August 28, 2009 3:24 PM

In an action against DaimlerChrysler based on human rights violations allegedly committed by Mercedes Benz Argentina, its subsidiary, in Argentina during the 1970s military regime, the dismissal of the action for lack of personal jurisdiction is affirmed, where a parent's control over a subsidiary must be over and above that to be expected as an incident of ownership for jurisdiction to exist on that basis.
