Return the Montrose Guitar!
Highest Court N.D. California
Year Ended 2009
Plaintiffs Band Member(s)
Defendants Moore, Gary
Other Montrose
Short Description Ronnie Montrose, the man behind the band Montrose, for whom Sammy Hagar sang in his early career, sued British guitarist Gary Moore, demanding return of a guitar stolen from Montrose 37 years earlier, and legitimately acquired by Defendant in good faith. The court needed not address the perceived ridiculousness of the complaint, because the court found it did not have personal jurisdiction over the Plaintiff; Defendant's operation of a website and sale of songs on iTunes did not confer general jurisdiction. - LSW
