   U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri - St. Louis

   Civil case - Contracts. Plaintiff Bakker did not carry his burden of 
   establishing a prima facie case of personal jurisdiction over defendant 
   Expander Global; nor did the district court err in granting defendants' 
   motion for summary judgment on plaintiffs' remaining contract claim as the 
   documents plaintiffs relied on to establish the existence of a contact did 
   not satisfy the writing requirements of Arizona's statute of frauds.
