The court considered five factors in evaluating the reasonableness of exerting federal long arm jurisdiction over a foreign defendant: 1) the burden that the exercise of jurisdiction will impose on the defendant; 2) the interests of the forum state in adjudicating the case; 3) the plaintiff's interest in obtaining convenient and effective relief; 4) the interstate judicial system's interest in obtaining the most efficient resolution of controversy; 5) the shared interest of the states in furthering substantive social policies.
