Eric Magnuson, co-chair of Nutter’s Business Litigation practice group, discussed a U.S. District Court ruling on how an Alabama university’s enrollment of a Massachusetts student in an online degree program did not create Massachusetts jurisdiction over the student’s lawsuit against the school in Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly.
