Highlight

If personal jurisdiction us challenged, the plaintiff bears the burden of proving jurisdiction exists. The plaintiff must make a prima facie showing of jurisdiction to defeat a motion to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction. If the court relies only on pleadings and affidavits, the court must look at the facts in the light most favorable to the plaintiff.
The court first must decide whether the requirements of the state's long-arm provision are satisfied and, if so, then must decide whether the exercise of personal jurisdiction comports with due process.
Review of a district court's decision on personal jurisdiction presents a question of law, reviewed under the de novo standard.
