Abstract

In five companion cases (the "Muscutt Quintet) the Court of Appeal for Ontario established an 8-factor test to determine basic jurisdiction over cases involving non-consenting defendants served outside the forum. This paper provides a critical analysis of the steps leading up to this decision and the role that this decision might play in the evolution of judicial jurisdiction.
