Victory in Federal Court Motion to Dismiss for Lack of Personal Jurisdiction

On May 30, 2019, the United States District Court granted a motion to dismiss for lack of jurisdiction with prejudice filed by Jana M. Moser of Moser Legal.

In the motion, Ms. Moser argued that the court lacked jurisdiction because her client is a multimedia distribution company incorporated in a foreign country with no ties to California other than a single film distribution agreement with a California entity. Citing U.S. Supreme Court precedent, the court agreed with Ms. Moser and noted that "a defendant's relationship with a plaintiff or third party, standing alone, is an insufficient basis for jurisdiction." Accordingly, the motion to dismiss was granted.

The complaint sought compensatory and punitive damages under the Copyright Act.
