Denburgh v. Tungsten Reef Mines Co

In Denburgh v. Tungsten Reef Mines Co., 48 Ariz. 540, 548, 63 P.2d 647, 655 (1934), the issue was whether Arizona courts would have jurisdiction over a fraud claim brought by a California resident acting under a California court order appointing him as an administrator against a Nevada corporation when there was no liability created in favor of an Arizona resident. The Arizona Supreme Court held that appointment of a statutory agent in Arizona would not provide jurisdiction because the cases which "establish jurisdiction to hear a suit against a corporation merely because of its compliance with statutory requirements, such as designating a statutory agent, refer to actions for the benefit of citizens of the state where the suit is brought."
