The Mississippi Supreme Court ruled that Wine Express and various other New York and California retailers established personal jurisdiction in Mississippi when they sold wine to Mississippi customers pursuant to UCC terms of contract in California and New York and helped arrange shipping for the customers back to Mississippi.

More case analysis to follow soon!
As the state’s wholesaler, Mississippi Alcoholic Beverage Control distributes over 3 million cases of spirits and wines annually.
In comparing what these tree innocent businesses sold in their public accommodations to Mississippians is relatively nothing.
Somebody needs to shorten this long arm of greedy monopolist.
