Ownership of personal property alone is usually insufficient to permit the

exercise of jurisdiction unless the defendant can be considered respon sible

for its presence in the state. Thus, jurisdiction may not be exercised over the
owner when the property has been brought into the state without his or her
knowledge or consent, until the owner learns of its presence and has had a
reasonable opportunity to reclaim it. See Comment to CCP 410.10 ("Bases
of Judicial Jurisdiction over Individuals," "(10) Ownership, Use or
Possession of Thing in State").
