Personal Jurisdiction in the Clemens case

Yesterday's Houston Chronicle discusses defendant's (McNamee's) territorial-jurisdiction challenge in the Roger Clemens defamation case.  Arguing that McNamee purposefully directed his tortious conduct at a known Texas resident, Clemens's lawyer was quoted as saying "It's only fair McNamee should have to defend himself in Texas.  . . . His conduct intentionally harmed Roger Clemens in this state and he should face a Texas jury."  Seems like a fairly straightforward Calder analysis, at least by description of the lawyer who needs it to be.
