Defendants do not offer any evidence to dispute the facts set forth in the Edmonson affidavit. Instead, they argue that the facts asserted are insufficient to support jurisdiction a matter of law. I disagree. In his affidavit, Edmonson states that over an eighteenmonth period, he and his colleague, Joseph Canfora, exchanged numerous emails with Von Stach in which Von Stach explained the terms of the offer and made the representations described above. Exhibits attached to the affidavit show that both Canforas and Edmonsons signature blocks identify their location as Burr Ridge, Illinois. Edmonson also states that beginning in February of 2015, plaintiffs made multiple wire transfers from their bank accounts in Illinois to VSP North America, pursuant to Von Stachs instructions. Exhibits attached to the affidavit also show that (check this out) when defendants assigned invoices to plaintiffs, they provided their dealers with plaintiffs Illinois bank account information for payment of the invoices. In addition, Edmonson states that Von Stach and Walker met with plaintiffs twice in Burr Ridge, Illinois: once on July 8, 2015, and again on February 14, 2016. Around the time of the July meeting (according to the affidavit, the parties met several times in July of 2015, but only once in Illinois), the parties discussed several other deals, one of which contemplated jointly forming an Illinois limited liability company. Another 5 involved further investment by plaintiffs in VSP invoices and a plan for repayment of the VSP entities outstanding obligations to plaintiffs.
