Please help me find this case
« on: December 17, 2004, 06:46:15 PM »
Hey!  A while back I read a case about a person that failed to show up at trial, though the plaintiff posted some sort of note in the newspaper, and I think the sheriff sold a recently purchased house or land, and gave the money to the plaintiff, that got the veredict with the defendant not present.  And no... I'm not a law student ;), so you'll forgive the nontechnical writing. Thanks!

Interesting.....we got that case in Civil Procedure regarding establishing peronsal (territorial)in personam jurisdiction by a court as well as proper notice issues.

Goes to show you the same case can deal with many issues.

You are right, it was Civil Procedure. I haven't had much sleep this week.  :o

yeah...it was a very important case in Civ Pro that established the foundational requirements for personal jurisdiction (in personam)...then later was expanded by International Shoe and minimum contacts requirement.

Minimum  contacts? What the hell are they, some new Johnson & Johnson disposable lenses?





Kidding.  Although, I am curious if your professors had a stick up their ass when it came to the phrase "minimum contacts."  Some professors favor the more verbose "sufficient minimum contacts," while others prefer "sufficient contacts," arguing that use of the word "minimum" implies some sort of quantity that will suffice, when it is really a qualitative test.

God... I need a life. Finals are over, why do I care?
Wouldn't it be grand if our Department of Defense was not offensive?
