Mealey's (August 17, 2015, 1:44 PM EDT) -- SAN FRANCISCO — A man who allegedly ran hundreds of websites that infringed the trademarks of a university for the purpose of selling unauthorized course materials failed to establish that the exercise of jurisdiction over him, despite being located in India, would violate due process, a California federal judge ruled Aug. 13, denying his motion to dismiss (Apollo Education Group Inc., et al. v. Vivek Somani, No. 3:15-cv-01056, N.D. Calif.; 2015 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 107439).
