In re the Marriage of Green.

2024 CO 24. No. 23SA167. Jurisdiction—General Personal Jurisdiction—Dissolution of Marriage—Domicile.

May 6, 2024

In this original proceeding, the Supreme Court held that for a Colorado court to exert general personal jurisdiction over an individual, the individual must be domiciled in the state. Because the petitioner in this dissolution of marriage case is not domiciled in Colorado, the Court concluded that he is not subject to general personal jurisdiction here. Accordingly, the Court made the rule to show cause absolute.
