My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: TN
I had posted in another thread the particulars of this issue and a question came up that is best answered by a practicing lawyer in TN or one familiar with jurisdiction issues in that state. In summary I am in CA, purchased an item from someone in TN through eBay for which he is now threatening a lawsuit.
My question is this: If he were to file in TN, and properly serve in CA, could I argue that the TN court has no jurisdiction over the issue and that the case should be filed in a CA court? Or will the simple act of my responding to challenge jurisdiction, via a letter, ends up being taken as consent for jurisdiction?
Edit: It would appear that rule 12.02 allows arguing lack of jurisdiction via a letter to the court. Am I reading this right? Thank you.
