In federal actions, a suit can be brought within a particular venue only if the district satisfies both the venue and personal jurisdiction requirements (discussed below) as to all defendants involved. There are three basic ways to establish venue within a particular district: (1) if any defendant resides in that district, and all defendants reside in the state containing that district; (2) if a substantial part of the events giving rise to the claim occurred, or a substantial part of property that is subject of the action is situated in the district; and (3) if at least one defendant is “reachable” in the district, or he is subject to personal jurisdiction.
