Kalk v. Fairfield Language Techs.

According to the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware ruling from April 22, a plaintiff cannot establish personal jurisdiction over a non-resident party merely because a link to that party's web site is featured in an online directory geared to the forum (defendant's website was mentioned in the Delaware Immigration Directory's website). Absent evidence that the defendant sought to be listed in the directory, there is no basis to conclude that the defendant has "purposefully availed" itself of the forum, the district court held.
