ORDER REQUIRING ADDITIONAL BRIEFING
REGARDING MOTION TO DISMISS
WATTS WATER TECHNOLOGIES, INC., et
A hearing was held on Defendant Watts Plumbing Technologies (Taizhou) Co., Ltd.’s Motion
to Dismiss for Lack of Personal Jurisdiction on September 25, 2012. At the hearing, the parties
disagreed as to whether, as part of the specific jurisdiction analysis, the Court should focus on the
named Plaintiffs or the putative class in analyzing whether the claims arise out of or relate to
Taizhou’s forum-related activities.
The Court ORDERS the parties to provide additional briefing, no longer than five pages,
supporting their respective positions. The additional briefing shall be filed by October 8, 2012. The
parties are advised to limit their additional authorities to that which is truly pertinent and directly
addresses the issues raised herein.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: October 2, 2012
