MacDermid, Inc. v. Deiter, No. 11-5388 (2d Cir. 2012)Annotate this Case
Plaintiff appealed the district court's dismissal of his complaint for lack of personal jurisdiction. At issue was whether a court in Connecticut could properly exercise long-arm jurisdiction over a defendant who, while domiciled and working in Canada, was alleged to have accessed a computer server located in Connecticut to misappropriate confidential information belonging to her employer. The court held that Connecticut district court had long-arm jurisdiction over defendant; defendant had sufficient minimum contacts in Connecticut; and the exercise of personal jurisdiction comported with due process. Accordingly, the court reversed and remanded.
