Subject: Lawsuit victory
I first want to thank you for providing an enjoyable distraction from my law
I came across your site when searching the internet for motions to dismiss for
lack of personal jurisdiction related to websites. I am currently in my first
year of law school and currently taking a class in civil procedure. In
reading the "opening acts" of your case I immediately noticed the Michigan
filing and it was refreshing to see your explanation of why you did not
originally contest it. (Jurisdiction is in fact a central fact to a fictitious
case I'm supposed to be writing a motion for right now.)
It's amazing that even knowing the public perception that lawyer's are snakes,
when we make an assertion that "jurisdiction exists because blah, blah," the
lay public tends to believe us.
I am glad you came away from the conflict relatively unscathed, especially
given your insistence on entering it naked (pro se).
I congratulate you on your fortitude and especially your continued support of
Congratulations and thanks for refreshing my view on my chosen profession.
