Internet Solutions Corporation v. Marshall

Brief of Amicus Curiae, Media Bloggers Association, Inc. in Support of Appellee, Tabatha Marshall


The 11th Circuit certified the following question to the Florida Supreme Court: "Does posting allegedly defamatory stories and comments about a company with its principal place of business in Florida on a non-commercial website owned and operated by a nonresident with no other connections to Florida constitute a commission of a tortious act within Florida for purposes of Fla. Stat. section 48.193(1)(b)?"

This is the friend of the court brief filed (conditionally) by the Media Bloggers Association, urging the Florida Supreme Court to respond in the negative.

Major work on this filing was done by MBA intern Andie Schwartz.
