Personal Jurisdiction - Minimum Contacts


A non-resident may be sued in California if the individual has sufficient contacts with the state, the claim arises from these contacts, and the exercise of jurisdiction is fair. This case dealt with the exercise of jurisdiction over two non-resident partnerships that owned property in the state.

Sacramento Suncreek Apartments, LLC ("Sacramento") bought a 268 unit apartment complex in Sacramento, California from a limited partnership which had been operating the property. When the apartment complex developed mold problems and its operations had to be shut down, Sacramento filed suit in California against various parties, including the limited partners of Cambridge Advantaged Properties II, L.P., which sold the property to Sacramento.
