Assume that Andy’s Auctions, Inc. is a corporation with its
principal place of business in Illinois. Mike is a proprietor of a small shop
in Georgia that sells used motorcycles. Andy’s calls Mike and offers to sell
Mike 25 used motorcycles he has on his auction lot. Mike signs a contract with
Andy’s Auctions, Inc. to purchase the motorcycles. Mike has never been to
Illinois; all of his business with Andy’s Actions, Inc. was done either online
or via telephone. Mike, of course, knows that Andy’s Auctions, Inc. has its
principle place of business in Illinois.

When Mike receives the motorcycles, he examines them and discovers that five of
the bikes are damaged and do not conform to the contract, that states the bikes
will be delivered in excellent condition. Mike pays Andy for 20 bikes and
refuses to pay for the five damaged bikes. Andy disagrees with Mike and files a
lawsuit in the circuit court in Illinois claiming that the bikes do conform to
the contract and that Mike owes him the purchase price for all 25 bikes. Mike
claims that the Illinois court has no personal jurisdiction over him, while
Andy claims that the state does have jurisdiction over him because he knowingly
did business with an Illinois company. Assume that there is no applicable
possibility of quasi in rem jurisdiction.

Please write an IRAC-style essay explaining whether Illinois likely to have
personal jurisdiction over Mike.

NOTE: Please disregard the contract issue for purposes of this
assignment. Focus on personal jurisdiction, only.
