Because I don't live, visit,have any contacts or do business in California, nor did the statement of the alleged event that is being questioned happen in California I feel pretty strong that the Personal Jurisdiction will suffice in both cases. If it doesn't work then I will file a notice for related case and go that route I guess. after weeks of reading California civil law statutes and precedent setting cases on internet libel I just can't fathom how they would have Jurisdiction over me over one statement. According to the Calders Effect I would have had to made reference to the State of California in my defamation statement, which I did not. I'm also concerned that hiring an attorney in California would be grounds for California to say that I had met minimum contacts by hiring interstate legal services.
