The Superior Court of Delaware recently denied a motion to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction, holding that, following a merger, the defendant corporation continued to transact business within Delaware and, in connection with that business, caused injury within the state.

Defendant Micco World, Inc. is a Georgia corporation and the surviving entity of a merger with Constellation Group, Inc., a Delaware corporation.
