Doe v. Roman Catholic Archbishop, No. B206272

By FindLaw Staff on September 01, 2009 4:02 PM

In an appeal from the trial court's order quashing service of summons and process on the Archdiocese of Cashel & Emly in Ireland regarding alleged sexual molestation by clergy, the order is affirmed, where: 1) plaintiff waived the issue by his failure to fairly and completely set forth, discuss, and analyze the relevant facts under the applicable substantial evidence standard of review; and 2) substantial evidence supported the trial court's ruling that the defendant had insufficient contacts with the State of California to support an exercise of either general or specific jurisdiction.
