Short Description Plaintiffs are a group of musicians, including the Chi-Lites, Leadbelly, Screamin' Jay Hawkins, and others, suing Defendant for distributing products containing Plaintiffs' music without proper licenses. Defendant, a New Jersey corporation, sought to dismiss, alleging it did not have sufficient contacts with Illinois to justify personal jurisdiction. The court, however, disagreed, finding the selling and active distribution of music within the state of Illinois sufficient. - LSW
