tm,

I knew you were an upperclassman, but i didn't know you were a 3L. I could use some advice and will pay cash for it.

advice on what?

not so much advice, as the benefit of your experience.  i'm a little bummed about my contracts performance.  not rock bottom, but I expected to soar a little more than I feel I did.

Question:  how valuable were your impressions of your own performance after your first law school exams?  Were they accurate?  Would you give the same answer if asked to characterized the reactions of your colleagues?

Just took my last practice exam.  Wish me luck in CivPro on Friday morning.  Going to take it easy for the next day and a half.  (Oh, who am I kidding?  I'll study non-stop after lunch.)

share.

Ok--so venue. 28 USC 1391 says you can get venue a few ways-
1-venue where a defendant resides if all live in the same state
or 2-venue where a substantial portion of the events of the claim took place
or failing those, 3-venue is proper in "any district where the defendant is subject to personal jurisdiction"
In the E&E Glannon says that 3 only applies if no venue is proper anywhere else in the US.

And that can't be right--because how would tag jurisdiction ever work if 1391(a)(3) is not available? Then I checked the Glannon Guide and he said he thought *maybe* he was wrong on this point--maybe 3 works even if there are other venues possible, depending on the court.
If service is a valid basis for personal jurisdiction (and the supreme court says it is), it can only work if venue is proper where the defendant is subject to personal jurisdiction. So. um. yeah. 1391(a)(3) has to be available even if other venues exist.

meh. too much civ pro.

*I modified for clarity :)
