The Internet and California (9th Cir. - August 8, 2011)

Willie Fletcher authors two opinions today that make it easier to haul companies into California based upon their activities on the internet.  The cases are totally unrelated, but both were argued on the same day (back in October) in Pasadena and both had the same panel.  Both cases also reverse the district court's dismissal for lack of personal jurisdiction.  The first case in Marvix Photo and the second is CollegeSource.

Attorneys here in California just got a little more business.  Welcome to our great state, litigants.
