Seal Polymer Industries sold two freight containers of latex gloves to Med- Express, Inc., a company based in North Carolina. When Med- Express failed to pay the $ 104,000 owed for the gloves, Seal Polymer sued in an Illinois court and obtained a judgment against Med- Express. Med- Express argued that it did not have minimum contacts with Illinois and there-fore the Illinois judgment based on personal jurisdiction was invalid. Med- Express stated that it was incorporated under North Carolina law, had its principal place of business in North Carolina, and therefore had no minimum contacts with Illinois. Was this statement alone sufficient to prevent the Illinois judgment from being collected against Med- Express in North Carolina? Why or why not?
