Internet Solutions Corp. v. Marshall, Civil No. 07-1740, 2008 WL 958136 (M.D. Fla., Apr. 7, 2008).
Status: Dismissed

Internet Solutions Corporation (ISC), which operates various websites on employment recruiting and Internet advertising, sued blogger Tabatha Marshall after her site,, claimed that ISC was operating a “phishing” scam. (“Phishing” is the illicit practice of acquiring sensitive personal and financial information, such as usernames, passwords and credit card information, by assuming an apparently trustworthy identity online.) The company sued Marshall, a resident of Washington state, in federal court in Florida, where it is based. But the court dismissed the case on jurisdictional grounds, holding that Marshall’s blog did not have sufficient “purposeful contacts” with Florida to allow the federal court to hear the case.
