Nova Law Review


Marc Rohr


As any well-taught law student knows, two things must generally

be true in order for an American court to render a binding in personam

judgment against a party who does not reside within the borders of the

state in which the court is located:' (1) the party's conduct must fall

within the terms of a statute of that state, universally known as a "long

arm statute," conferring power upon that state's courts to hear cases of

the kind described therein, and (2) the assertion of personal jurisdiction

under the long arm statute must satisfy the "minimum contacts" test

articulated by the United States Supreme Court in the case of International

Shoe Co. v. Washington.
