While I have given you portions of the case pertaining to notice as well as the in personam v. in rem distinction, focus on the notice materials, which are the core of the case. The rest is an appetizer for the personal jurisdiction section of the course.
Did the statute in Doehr die after the Supreme Court decision? Not quite….This case involved a fight between a homeowner and contractor hired to do repairs. When the homeowner was not happy with the quality of the work he would not pay. The contractor retaliated by getting an ex part prejudgment attachment of the owner's home. While that state case was pending, the homeowner sued in FEDERAL court to block the application of the attachment statute as unconstitutional after Doehr. How did the Third Circuit court of appeals rule? Was this case distinguishable?
