The purpose of this Comment is to read the entrails of judicial conceptions which have been sacrificed for reasons of public policy. Antitrust law provides a fertile source of cases which consider these problems. Almost since the passage of the Sherman Act, alien corporations have been sued when acts committed abroad have adversely affected U.S. plaintiffs. The extraterritorial application of antitrust law is well established. In most antitrust cases against corporations, a single sixty-year-old statute governs venue and service of process. There is nevertheless little agreement on its meaning.
After a brief review of the historical background, this Comment will consider present problems and trends in the case law. Misconceived corporate law and intricate federal jurisdiction questions have needlessly complicated the issues. International Shoe and state long-arm statutes provide straightforward solutions.
