Glannon's Civil Pro book says that one of the requirements of a proper court for a lawsuit is "the need to find a court that can exercise personal jurisdiction over the defendant."I know (I think) that states can assert PJ over a defendant in certain circumstances.However, if the complaint is filed in federal court, do we also say that the federal court is "exercising personal jurisdiction over the defendant?" (I'm getting a little mixed up between state personal jurisdiction and federal subject matter diversity.)Thanks!
The missing piece in the analysis is that federal courts also have to have personal jurisdiction over the defendant. They borrow the requirements from the state where the district court is located.
