Pretty much the same thing. Another split, so there's no prevailing stream of commerce rule. The facts were a little different, though. The company in Nicastro actually targeted the US (unlike Asahi). But, the court, using O'Connor's theory, came down that there was no specific jurisdiction based on the stream of commerce theory, becasue the company didn't specifically target New Jersey.
