Sloan v. Segal, 2008 WL 81513 (Del. Ch., Jan. 3, 2008), read opinion here. This Delaware Chancery Court case includes a helpful discussion of personal jurisdiction and venue issues in connection with residents of other states who are fighting over Delaware documents. The background involves three brothers fighting over the changes in their mothers’ trust and estate documents that purported to disinherit two of the brothers. The two brothers who were purportedly excluded based on the latest changes, had been estranged from their mother for about 15 years prior to her death but still showed up to contest the distribution of her assets. The sad tale of family schism was only described briefly enough to provide the factual basis for the court to deny a motion to dismiss due to alleged lack of personal jurisdiction and venue arguments.
