What is a Motion for Lack of Personal Jurisdiction?

“A judgment can be void for lack of personal or subject matter jurisdiction or for the granting of relief which the trial court had no power to grant. A trial court has the inherent power to set aside a judgment void on its face at any time.” Connelly v. Castillo (1987) 190 Cal.App.3d 1583, 1588; Strathvale Holdings v. E.B.H. (2005) 126 Cal.App.4th 1241, 1249.

A court may exercise jurisdiction on any basis not inconsistent with the Constitution of California or of the United States. Code Civ. Proc., § 410.10. The assertion of personal jurisdiction by a California court is proper if it “comports with the limits imposed by federal due process.” Young v. Daimler AG (2014) 228 Cal.App.4th 855, 865.

The exercise of personal jurisdiction is constitutionally permissible only “if the defendant has sufficient minimum contacts with the forum state so that the exercise of jurisdiction does not offend traditional notions of fair play and substantial justice.” HealthMarkets, Inc. v. Super. Ct. (2009) 171 Cal.App.4th 1160, 1166; Shoe Co. v. Washington (1945) 326 U.S. 310, 316. A defendant’s conduct with the forum state must be such that the defendant has “fair warning” that its activities might subject it to personal jurisdiction. HealthMarkets, Inc., supra, 171 Cal.App.4th at p. 1166–1167; Burger King Corp. v. Rudzewicz (1985) 471 U.S. 462, 472; Asahi Metal Industry Co., Ltd., v. Super. Ct. of California, Solano County (1987) 480 U.S. 102, 113. Each defendant’s “contacts” with the forum state must be assessed individually. Calder v. Jones (1984) 465 U.S. 783, 790.

“A summons is the process by which a court acquires personal jurisdiction over a defendant in a civil action, and a defendant has an absolute right to demand that process be issued against him in a manner prescribed by law.” Mannesmann DeMag, Ltd. v. Super. Ct. (1985) 172 Cal.App.3d 1118, 1122. “Due process of law does not require actual notice, but only a method reasonably certain to accomplish that end.” Baughman v. Medical Board (1995) 40 Cal.App.4th 398, 402.

A defendant may serve and file a motion to quash service of summons on the grounds of a lack of jurisdiction over him or her. Code Civ. Proc., § 418.10(a)(1). A plaintiff opposing a motion to quash service for lack of personal jurisdiction “has the initial burden to demonstrate facts establishing a basis for personal jurisdiction.” HealthMarkets, Inc. v. Super. Ct. (2009) 171 Cal.App.4th 1160, 1167. If satisfied, the burden then shifts to defendant to show that exercise of jurisdiction would be unreasonable. Id.

“A general appearance by a party is equivalent to personal service of summons on such party.” Code Civ. Proc., § 410.50(a); Fireman’s Fund Insurance Co. v. Sparks Construction, Inc. (2004) 114 Cal.App.4th 1135, 1145. “An appearance is general if the party contests the merits of the case or raises other than jurisdictional objections.” Geary St., L.P. v. Super. Ct. (1990) 219 Cal.App.3d 1186, 1193-94. “By generally appearing, a defendant relinquishes all objections based on lack of personal jurisdiction or defective process or service of process.” In re Marriage of Obrecht (2016) 245 Cal.App.4th 1, 7-8.
