Question 6 Padma, a citizen of California, sues Diego, a citizen of Utah, in federal court in the Northern District of California for a tort committed by Diego in Utah. Diego's only contacts with California are unrelated to Padma's claim. When Diego moves to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction, the court will: A. Deny the motion because Diego has minimum contacts with the United States as a whole. B. Grant the motion because it would be unconstitutional for a California state court to assert jurisdiction over Diego. C. Grant the motion because it would be unconstitutional for the federal court to assert personal jurisdiction over Diego. D. Deny the motion if Diego was served within 100 miles of the Northern District of California courthouse.

Question 8 States, and trial in Buffalo is not unreasonably inconvenient, which it would probably not be given Darius's proximity to Buffalo. The "bulge" provision of Rule 4(k)(1)(B) has no application because Darius was "served within a judicial district of the United States." Pepita sues Dardanus in federal court in New York for defaming her in a Twitter posting. Pepita is a citizen of New York. Dardanus is a citizen of the United Kingdom. When Dardanus moves to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction, the court will: A. Grant the motion pursuant to Rule 4(k)(1)(A) if Dardanus would not be amenable to jurisdiction in New York state court. B. Deny the motion pursuant to Rule 4(k)(2) if Dardanus has sufficient contacts with the United States to satisfy the Fifth Amendment and he would not otherwise be subject to personal jurisdiction in any state. C. Deny the motion pursuant to Rule 4(k)(1)(C) if Dardanus has sufficient contacts with the United States to satisfy the Fifth Amendment. D. Deny the motion pursuant to Rule 4(k)(1)(B) if Dardanus was served with process in New Jersey less than 100 miles from the federal courthouse.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
