Personal jurisdiction and the internet Here's a news item tying together two hot topics: (1) Enron; and (2) The permissibility of personal jurisdiction over a defendant, based solely on its contacts with the forum state through the internet. There's no caselaw on the latter topic in Alabama, to my knowledge (please tell me if I'm wrong!); a Circuit Judge in Montgomery is considering the issue in this Enron suit.
