I take away from this decision that it will be difficult to acquire long arm jurisdiction in most defamation cases. Interesting decision for sure.


Hey NYCL thanks for the info...

new york cle

this will be one to see with all of the defamation suits arising from the internet.


very interesting and informative article posting site, Thanks for your posts


The Court also noted that the alleged defamatory comments were not made in New York and Court of Appeals will wrestle with just how narrow it will construe contacts in New york.


The problem with courts is that on many occasions the court sides with the criminal rather than the victim. For example, they may convict the criminal but the sentence in many cases does not reflect the crime.

Its not only an interesting decision but also a complicated one. Nice info, I can't wait to see the results!
