9TH CIRCUIT REFUSES TO GET GRADE-A LONG UNDIES IN A BUNCH

J. Craig Williams sounds disappointed that the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has declined to answer whether federal courts have jurisdiction over out-of-state Internet retailers.  (See Jeff Chorney's article for The Recorder here).

To Williams' irritation, we still don't know where Internet e-tailers can be sued:

"We're left to wonder what will ultimately be the law in this circuit and wanting for guidance over whether California can exercise jurisdiction over companies doing business in the state via the Internet.

"If you were on the court, how would you decide? Should L.L. Bean expect to be dragged from Maine into court here in California? "

He's open to comments here.
