Supreme Court Grants Discretionary Review In Personal Jurisdiction Case

Yesterday the NC Supreme Court granted discretionary review in a case in which the Court of Appeals (COA) held there was no personal jurisdiction over the defendant under the longarm statute. The case is Brown v. Ellis, and the COA decision is here. It's an alienation of affections and criminal conversation case. The COA's longarm ruling turned on the fact that the cheating wife wasn't present in NC at the time the defendant solicited her. The COA decision issued in July 2007. For our post on that decision when it came down (entitled, "If Your Spouse Cheats, Hope It Happens In NC"), see here.
