Long-arm question civ pro

Postby patienunderstanding » Thu Dec 05, 2013 5:30 pm

What does it mean "that state long-arm statutes extend as much as permitted under the U.S. Constitution" in terms of doing analysis on the Civ Pro exam? Does it mean I should simply "acknowledge" that the long-arm is satisfied and I only need to do Due Process analysis? (PJ)
Thanks

Yep. Acknowledge that there needs to be a statute and that there is one. If it says it goes to the limits of constitutionality, just analyze the constitutionality of the particular hypo.
