[Appealed from W.D. Wash., Judge Leighton]
In Campbell Pet Co. v. Miale, No. 08-1109 (Fed. Cir. Sept. 18, 2008), the Federal Circuit reversed the district court’s dismissal of plaintiff’s DJ complaint, finding that the presence and activities of the defendant patent holder in the state of Washington were sufficient for the Washington district court to exercise in personam jurisdiction over the defendants.
