Sunday, October 03, 2010

Personal Jurisdiction for eBay Sellers
Courts faced with the question of personal jurisdiction involving eBay transactions have consistently held that the typical online auction process, in and of itself, is insufficient to confer specific personal jurisdiction over an out-of-state defendant.
