Review of Jxn's Hypo
Lyle is a net surfer. He conducts a lot of his business transactions
over the net including his dealing with the bank. Kyle thought that was
neat so Lyle taught him how to transact his business over the net.
During the course of teaching Kyle, Lyle accidentally came across the
Bank of the United States and issued command for $60,000 to be
transferred to his bank account. Kyle did the same for his bank account
for $30,000. Lyle is a citizen and resident of CA. Kyle is a temp
worker residing in CA but plans to return back home to Nevada. The Bank
of the US figured out somebody broke into our national sacred Bank and
immediately began this lawsuit. They wish to bring lawsuit in federal
district court against both Lyle and Kyle. I don't remeber where the
Bank of the US is, but let's assume that it's not in CA or Nevada.
What statute would permit the Bank to bring the lawsuit? (sub. matter
jxn: Hint--review Osborn Case)
Where can the suit be brought originally? (venue)
Can it be transferred anywhere? (transferrance of venue)
What kind of contact would you like to see? Fact wise what would you add?
