COA Finds Minimum Contacts Lacking For Personal Jurisdiction

Today in Lulla v. Effective Minds, LLC, the Court of Appeals (COA) reversed the trial court's finding that it had personal jurisdiction over defendants. The COA held that minimum contacts required by the Due Process Clause were lacking. The case alleged breach of contract. The COA reiterated that the mere act of entering into a contract with a resident of NC will not provide sufficient minimum contacts, and the COA emphasized there was no evidence that the contract was entered into in NC or was to be performed in NC.
