Another Court Case Update...

The judge issued an order on my case today, thowing it out on grounds of personal jurisdiction, stating:

Defendant's blog site while interactive in the sense that it allows individuals to read and post comments on a forum, does not rise to the level of interactivity to tip the "sliding scale" in favor of personal jurisdiction [over a nonresident].

Our motion for summary judgement was moot since courts do not decide liability issues on cases they are not hearing.

The court gave the plaintiff 30 days to request leave to ammend the complaint. As I learn more so will you. Thanks to everyone who has helped me out so far.

How much do you want to bet that they'll do nothing in the next 30 days, guess in 31 days it's over?
