Part one I have chosen to research ESPN.com to determine if it could be held under personal jurisdiction in a state other than its incorporated state. I believe that the ESPN.com creator would be held under personal jurisdiction if a party chose to sue the creator. On this page you can purchase a service for fantasy sports, Insider information, and purchase goods such as hats, shirts, and balls to name a few. The website did not seem to have any restrictions other than the US as to where the buyer had to be located. This means that anyone in the US can purchase these goods and services, opening up personal jurisdiction in all states because it could potentially have contacts in any state. This site, however, does not target any specific state. That being said if no one from, say, North Dakota bought anything from this site, it could be contested that the creator has no contacts in North Dakota there for cannot be held under personal jurisdiction in that state.
