U.S. Supreme Court denies certiorari in internet jurisdiction case from W.D. Va.

As reported here, on Monday the Supreme Court issued an order refusing to hear the case of the Wise County, Virginia prison warden who sued a Connecticut newspaper in Virginia, claiming defamation. The Fourth Circuit held that the newspaper's web presence was not enough to support personal jurisdiction in Virginia, overturning the ruling of Judge Glen Williams of the W.D. Va.
