Anthony Walden v. Gina Fiore, et al

Docket No. 12-574

QUESTION PRESENTED:

1. Whether due process permits a court to exercise personal jurisdiction over a defendant whose sole "contact" with the forum State is his knowledge that the plaintiff has connections to that State. 

2. Whether the judicial district where the plaintiff suffered injury is a district "in which a substantial part of the events or omissions giving rise to the claim occurred" for purposes of establishing venue under 28 U.S.C. § 1391(b)(2) even if the defendant's alleged acts and omissions all occurred in another district.
