Website Contact with Illinois Found Sufficient for Personal Jurisdiction

Mark Partridge of the Guiding Rights blog has a great summary of a recent case here in Illinois about personal jurisdiction over an out of state defendant. The court found that there were sufficicent minimum contacts based upon activity performed over the defendant’s website with the state of Illinois to justify holding the defendant subject to Illinois jurisdiction. I’d considered summarizing the case myself, but had decided not to since personal jurisdiction cases are so fact specific and the underlying law in this area is rather well settled. Still, I liked his summary of the case, so here is the link.
