Easterling v. Am. Optical Corp., 207 W.Va. 123, 529 S.E.2d 588 (W.Va. 2000).

The holding in this case clarified the manner in which West Virginia’s long arm statutes are to be applied in product liability actions and established that a motion to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction cannot be converted to a summary judgment motion, even when the circuit court considers matters outside the pleadings.
