Definitions of MINIMUM CONTACT
Sort: Oldest first
When an out-of-state defendant commits a crime in another state, this specific legal term defines that the defendant can be brought into state court where the crime was committed for the civil case. Minimum contact requirements have basis in the Fourteenth Amendment right of due process. The defendant's minimum contact occurred from having brought property into the state, from being in the state in question, or from having visited the state.
