John G. Green, et al. v. William Mason & Co., et al.

1998 U.S. Dist. Lexis 331, 996 F. Supp. 394 (D.N.J., March 5, 1998)

Defendant was a California-based bank who's only contact with New Jersey was via its web site. This site was available to New Jersey residents and apparently contained a toll-free number that could be used to contact defendant. This contact was insufficient to permit the exercise of personal jurisdiction over defendant in an action that did not arise out of defendant's operation of its web site. "Imperial's web site cannot, by itself, support an exercise of jurisdiction under the Fourteenth Amendment."
