Jurisdiction Over Individuals


Jurisdiction can be established for individuals upon a showing of: (1) presence within the forum state (or the state in which the court sits); (2) domicile within the state; (3) consent to being sued within the state (generally done by appearing in court without raising jurisdictional question); (4) tortious acts committed within the state (many states have laws allowing their courts to exercise jurisdiction over non-resident motorists who have been involved in accidents in the state) and (5) business done within a state to name just a few.
