Garfein v. McInnis
Court of Appeals of New York
162 N.E. 73 (1928)
Garfien (plaintiff) entered into a contract with McInnis (defendant), a resident of Connecticut, to purchase real estate in the State of New York. McInnis breached the contract, and Garfein sued McInnis for specific performance in a New York state court. McInnis was served with the summons and complaint in Connecticut. The state court denied McInnis’ motion to set aside the service on the grounds that it was insufficient to bind him in the State of New York. McInnis maintained his argument and appealed.
