Highlight

The district court has personal jurisdiction over a nonresident defendant if the nonresident defendant committed a tort within or outside the state causing injury to another person or property within the state and the exercise of personal jurisdiction comports with due process.
The exercise of personal jurisdiction over a nonresident defendant comports with due process if the defendant purposely directed his activities at residents of the state and the litigation results from alleged injuries arising out of or related to those activities.
Whether a contract is ambiguous is a question of law, but if the contract is ambiguous, extrinsic evidence may be considered to determine the parties' intent and the interpretation becomes a question of fact.
A third party may benefit from a contractual arrangement between others, but a party fails to establish an unjust enrichment claim against the third party if the alleged impoverishment results from a valid contractual arrangement.
A decision is final for purposes of collateral estoppel if it is not tentative, provisional, or contingent and represents the completion of all steps in the adjudication of the claim by the court.
