Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center v.

Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center v.

TROUT, Justice. Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center (St. Alphonsus) appeals from the trial court’s dismissal of its action against the
State of Washington (Washington). St. Alphonsus, an approved health care provider under Washington’s worker’s compensation
system, originally brought suit against Washington alleging intentional interference with contractual relations, infringement
of interstate commerce and deprivation of property without due process of law after Washington changed its worker’s compensation
rules governing payment for health care. The trial court granted Washington’s motion to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction
on the grounds that Washington did not have sufficient minimum contacts with Idaho under the Due Process Clause of the United
States Constitution, and did not fall within the terms of Idaho’s long-arm statute. We do not agree with the trial court’s
finding that Washington’s conduct, as alleged, fell outside the terms of our long-arm statute. We affirm the ruling of the
trial court, however, on the grounds that the assertion of jurisdiction over Washington would violate the Due Process Clause
of the United States Constitution.
