The article discusses the issues on personal jurisdiction of California towards the insurance company. It notes the case of Esther Elkman against National States Insurance Co. wherein the California Court of Appeal held that the insurer is not under the personal jurisdiction of the country by accepting claims submitted by the insurer for treatment given in-state. Moreover, the court had rejected the argument of Elkman that the insurer had enough contacts with the state to vindicate jurisdiction.
