Question 1 of 1

  Time Left


Perrone, an Acadia resident, sues Margules, a Montanan, in an Acadia state court, for defamation. He claims that Margules called Acme Corporation, an Acadia company that was planning to hire Perrone, and made false and defamatory statements about his professional abilities that led Acme to decide not to hire him. Margules places the call from her office in Montana. Assume that Acadia has a long- arm statute that authorizes personal jurisdiction over a defendant who “causes personal injury in this state by a tortious act or omission while physically present within this state.” Assume that this is the only statute that might authorize the Acadia Court to exercise personal jurisdiction over Perrone for this claim.
