The Appellate Advocacy practice at Anderson Jones recently scored two victories in the North Carolina Court of Appeals. While the two cases were unrelated, they both involved similar issues relating to a court’s ability to exercise personal jurisdiction over a defendant without offending the Due Process Clause of the U.S. Constitution. In each case, the opposing party attempted to dismiss the lawsuit and have the case litigated in a different state. Anderson Jones attorneys successfully advocated on behalf of the clients to keep the cases in North Carolina because the courts in this State could lawfully exercise jurisdiction without violating the opposing parties’ constitutional rights. The trial courts ruled in favor our firm in both cases, and in each case the panel of judges on the Court of Appeals unanimously affirmed the trial court’s ruling. The two opinions from the Court of Appeals can be found at the following links: Opinion 1 and Opinion 2.
